CBS and Warner Bros. are partnering on a pilot for a series adaptation of the film “Training Day,” TheWrap has learned.

The series would take place 15 years after the original film, directed by Antoine Fuqua. That movie, released in 2001 by Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow, was released in 2001 and starred Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke. Washington won an Academy Award for his performance in the film.

The pilot will be directed by Fuqua, who will executive produce with Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman.

Former LAPD detective Will Beall, who wrote the original movie, is also writer of the pilot.

Jerry Bruckheimer Productions and Fuqua Films are also producing the project, which has received a pilot-production commitment from the network.
