Sadly it seems like we will not see Alona Tal in NYPD BLUE. Hopefully they will release the pilot as a tv movie so we can get a chance to see it.

ABC’s NYPD Blue revival did not make it onto the network’s fall schedule — and now we know why.

“The main problem was that the bar was so high,” ABC’s entertainment president, Karey Burke tells TVLine of the “heartbreaking” decision to pass on the pilot. “It was a very good pilot. On any other network, in any other circumstance, that show [likely] gets on the air. For us, we kept the bar really high. We all felt like unless we can really advance the ball from the original let’s let the original rest. They did as good a job as one can do with something that is that revered.”

Earlier reports suggested ABC would reshoot the pilot with an eye towards a possible slot in the Alphabet network’s midseason slate. Burke is not completely ruling out that possibility. “I can’t say definitively, 100 percent that it won’t come back around,” she says. “Because it might come back around.”
