J.J. Abrams Plans A New Sci-Fi Series

J.J. Abrams has reportedly penned a new sci-fi drama television series that is currently the subject of a bidding war between Apple and HBO.

The Live Feed reports that details of the project are being kept under wraps but it will deal with a world battling against a monstrous, oppressive force.

Abrams and Ben Stephenson will executive produce and while he’s produced a few series in recent years (“Westworld,” “Castle Rock”), this project would mark Abrams’ first TV writing effort since “Fringe” a decade ago.

Though Apple and HBO are the favourites, producer Warner Bros. TV is reportedly open to other bids.
