It won't happen tomorrow, but eventually this will happen.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is looking at what the rules will be to allow drone flights over people. As noted in a recent blog post, State Farm recently garnered a waiver for this very thing already.
I figure it could take two years before the rule-making is done. With the FAA granting individual waivers to specific companies and uses, they will learn a great deal from those pilot endeavors.
