JJ Abrams To Produce New Pilot For NBC
You can't get away from JJ Abrams right now, the man had more fingers in different pies than he knows what to do with and now he has dived into another project, this time he's producing a pilot for a potential new series for NBC.
Abrams is currently working with Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban director Alfonso Cuaron on a new drama called Believe, the network revealed today. Cuaron will be serving as the writer and executive-producer alongside Mark Friedman, the creator of The Forgotten, with Abrams and his Bad Robot Productions partner Bryan Burk also producing. Believe is a super-natural series that will centre on a gifted and powerful young girl who is protected from evil forces by a recently-released convict.
On top of this latest project, the Lost creator was also unveiled as the man to take over from George Lucas on the latest reboot of the Star Wars franchise today and also has another TV project in the pipeline on top of another, un-named, pilot. This other project, which is being commissioned by FX and is yet to be titled, takes place "in the near future, when all LAPD officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids," the official press release says.
