The show, to air on Fox, is based on the character from The Terminator movie franchise. Written by Josh Friedman, it takes place after the events depicted in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. The Hollywood Reporter says it will follow Sarah Connor, a modern warrior and loving single mom to 15-year-old son John.

David Nutter is directing and executive producing The Sarah Connor Chronicles pilot, which is expected to film early next year.
