Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Both Future Cop and Cops and Robin were feature-length pilots for TV series. Both starred Ernest Borgnine, Michael Shannon and John Amos. Both were tongue-in-cheek science-fiction efforts about a hard-nosed cop (Borgnine) who is teamed with an android (Shannon). And both died aborning before a series could get under way. For the record, Future Cop premiered May 1, 1976.
