I was once very critical of the news that a PSYCHO prequel was being planned called BATES MOTEL and even commented that “Its a story we do not need”, only for the show to blow me away and is now one of my favourite TV Shows of all time.

So this news that MGM are weirdly developing a Robocop TV prequel but without Alex Murphy, instead focusing on the young life of Senior Vice President of Omni Consumer Products. Dick Jones, played memorably by Ronny Cox.

One of the original writers of the 1987 film Ed Neumeier is behind the project and reports are very scarce on what to expect!

Its an odd idea but lets wait and see how it develops.
