*Will Smith and James Lassiter’s Overbrook Entertainment have partnered with Chinese-born filmmaker Eva Jin to develop an untitled crime drama for Fox, reports Variety.
Twentieth Century Fox TV is behind the untitled hourlong, which focuses on a crime-fighting female college student China.
Smith, Lassiter and Overbrook are also developing an hourlong based on the feature “Hitch,” which starred Smith.
Smith is no stranger to China; he produced this year’s “The Karate Kid” reboot, which starred his son Jaden (opposite Jackie Chan) and was filmed in the country.
There’s no word on whether this project would be produced overseas. Jin, who went to school in the U.S., is a cartoonist-turned-filmmaker who was behind the Zhang Ziyi romantic comedy “Sophie’s Revenge.”
Overbrook’s past TV credits include the comedy “All of Us.” Feature films at the shingle include “Hancock,” “Lakeview Terrace,” “Seven Pounds,” “The Secret Life of Bees” and “I Am Legend.”
