NBC Grabs J.J. Abrams’ Comedic Drama With Lost’s Linus And Locke
A comedic drama about former black-ops agents, the project was previously known as Odd Jobs but now is technically untitled. Vulture says that NBC, which premiered Abrams’ Undercovers tonight, has made a pilot commitment to the show. Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec (Alias, Mission Impossible IV) are writers/executive producers, while Abrams and his Bad Robot partner Bryan Burk are also executive producers.
Odd Jobs appears to be rooted in an idea for a “TNT-type” show about suburban hitmen that O’Quinn floated back in February.
