ABC has put in development Rookie, a single-camera cop comedy from Will Gluck and Tosh.0 director Scott Zabielski. Written by Community co-executive producer Andy Bobrow and produced by Sony Pictures TV and Gluck’s studio-based Olive Bridge, Rookie centers on a twentysomething woman who tries to reinvent herself by becoming a cop, and finds a surrogate family amongst the disparate group of police she works with.

In addition to his Hollywood career, Zabielski, who has been tapped to helm New Line’s Police Academy remake, serves as a reserve police officer in West Hollywood. It’s been another strong selling season for Gluck and Olive Bridge, with multiple put pilot commitments and a 22-episode order from NBC for a comedy starring Michael J. Fox. UTA reps Gluck, Bobrow and Zabielski who is managed by Underground.
