That J.J. Abrams is one busy man. I guess he’s not satisfied to have sold three shows to three separate networks in recent months, because he’s at it again.
Michael Ausiello scoops that another pair from Abrams’ roster of screenwriters — Monica Breen and Alison Schapker, who worked with Abrams on Alias, Lost, and Fringe — have crafted a new hourlong called Pulp. All that’s known about the potential series is that it’s a crime drama “set in a slightly heightened reality,” which I assume means it’s stylized in some way.
Already sold to Fox, NBC, and CBS, are speculative drama Alcatraz, Terry O’Quinn & Michael Emerson’s “retired hitmen” dramedy Odd Jobs, and Jonathan Nolan’s crime thriller Person of Interest, respectively. Fall 2011 looks to be one groovy season for fans of genre television.
