Will Smith is headed back to China but this time for a crime drama he’s developing for Fox. Smith’s Overbrook Ent. has partnered with Chinese-born filmmaker Eva Jin to develop the series, which takes place in that country.

Overbrook’s untitled and yet to be cast hour-long show will focus on a crime-fighting female college student in China. This sounds promising, especially with the success of The CW’s Nikita (people like bad ass chicks).

And that’s not all. You know the Will Smith is always grinding. His production company, Overbrook, is also developing an hour-long based on the movie Hitch. [via Variety]
