No, I'm in complete agreement. These large-cast police procedurals are all the rage, and the science-fiction hook may hoik it out of the crowd and get it noticed. Dredd could still be the "main character", much like wotsisname in the CSI franchise, but surrounded by more human judges may make him more palatable to the audience. A Netflix (type) series could allow for proper development and multiple plots to further grab the viewer.
If they insist of spinning it out of the movie, why not call it 'MC1: Sector 13' and dunk it in a healthy bath of cynical pisstaking of exactly those type of procedurals it pretends to be? Who knows, it might then lead to multiple spin-offs ('MC1: Psi Division', 'MC1: The Low Life' etc) and an eventual blanket presence in that section of the EPG I usually flick straight past on my way towards Babestation and its naughty brethren.
