Forget time travel — that’s so early 2016. The buzz around HBO’s Westworld means that other networks are now looking for their own shows focusing on artificial intelligence. The latest contender is being prepped by Fox; it’s called Girl 10, and is produced by Jessica Alba and written by Gotham‘s Ken Woodruff.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news, but it didn’t mention if Alba would also star in the series. That said, it sounds like there’s a rather Alba-esque role at Girl 10‘s centre:
Girl 10 is set in the very near future and revolves around Elle, one of only 10 synthetic humans in existence who is being investigated for murder while trying to stop an evil cabal from weaponizing the technology behind artificial intelligence.
THR points out that besides Westworld, other current TV shows with AI themes include AMC’s Humans and Syfy’s pilot The Machine; the growing trend has no doubt been bolstered by movies like Ex Machina and Morgan, too.
