A 2001 police drama about a veteran who escorts a rookie on his first day at LAPD's inner-city narcotics unit is invading the television through CBS.

Jerry Bruckheimer and Antoine Fuqua teamed up a few days ago, on August 7, 2015; to develop a TV adaptation of the film. The idea was pitched to four major networks (NBC,ABC,CBS and Fox), Movie Web reported.

CBS has won the bid and has currently handed out a pilot-production commitment to a Training Day remake based on the film released on 2001 of the same name, THR reported. The potential series will take place in LAPD 2015, 15 years after the movie. Ethan Hawke and Denzel Washington will still take their roles like it was in the movie.

The director of the film, Antoine Fuqua, will also direct the pilot -- which is written by feature writer and former LAPD detective, Will Beall. Producing the pilot alongside Fuqua are Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman. The drama hails from Warner Bros. Television which is located on the same area as Fuqua Films and Bruckheimer's.

The film was originally written by David Ayer and was released October 5th, 2001.
