It was reported earlier this week that ABC, NBC and CBS were battling over the rights to JJ Abrams new TV drama, a series about a married couple in the world of espionage. It seems that the negotiations have already wrapped up, with NBC emerging the victor.
The series is being co-produced by Warner Bros. and Bad Robot, but there aren’t too many more details right now. It’s unclear how deeply Abrams will be involved in the project, especially considering he also has a medical comedy in the works and his ongoing commitment to sci-fi series Fringe that he co-created.
It’ll be interesting to see how Abrams distinguishes this new show from his previous spy series Alias, which ran for five seasons and strongly featured a romantic couple who were both CIA agents.
