J.J. Abrams and Ken Olin Reteam For CW Undercover-Cop Drama
Eventually J.J. Abrams will have enough television series in his stable that he’ll be able to program his own network. JJTV, maybe? The creator, or co-creator, of Felicity, Alias, Lost, Fringe and Undercovers, and the executive producer of Person of Interest, Alcatraz and Revolution just sold a comedy to Fox earlier this week, and now he’s landed a police show at The CW.
The Live Feed reports the project, called Electropolis, reunites Abrams with Alias executive producer Ken Olin for an undercover-cop drama “about after-hours Los Angeles and the young people who live their lives after most are asleep, making their moves to the pulsing beats of electronic music.” Electropolis, get it?
The show is produced by Warner Bros. Television and Abrams’ studio-based company Bad Robot.
