Following an extremely busy TV development season, several "Lost" alumni are said to be working on a new potential TV series.
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that former "Lost" executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz are teaming with "Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof on a "fairy-tale-themed drama series." The project is reportedly being pitched to ABC Studios first, since all three producers currently have development deals at that network. Kitsis and Horowitz have a long-standing partnership and have worked together on "Popular," "Felicity," "Birds of Prey" and the upcoming "Tron Legacy."
Although the project is still in an extremely early stage of development, it will reportedly feature a female lead.
Our colleagues at TV Overmind have cited rumors that the project may be an adaptation of "Fables," the hit Vertigo comic book series by Bill Willingham and Mark Buckingham; which the network has previously attempted to develop. While that seems plausible, an original property may be more likely in this case.
Recently, Elizabeth Sarnoff – another former "Lost" executive producer – and "Lost" co-creator J.J. Abrams sold an "Alcatraz" pilot to Fox. Abrams also sold a crime drama to CBS called "Person of Interest" to CBS, which was developed in conjunction with "The Dark Knight" screenwriter, Jonathan Nolan.
Abrams will also be reteaming with former "Lost" co-stars Michael Emerson and Terry O’Quinn on a show tentatively titled "Odd Jobs" for NBC.
