The Untitled show is said to be set in a far-flung future where every human cop is paired with an android partner. Raise your hand if you're hoping for a Blade Runner-esque feel to the show! The project is currently set up at Fox which will need something to replace the recently-wrapped Fringe. You have to wonder how much time Abrams will be able to devote to the project seeing as how he just signed on to direct one of the biggest movie franchises of all-time. J.H. Wyman (Fringe), Bryan Burk (Revolution, Alcatraz) and Abrams will serve as executive producers. More details as the story develops.

Jar Jar Abrams is still news? I figure once everyone bought into him defecating gold bricks he can do no wrong, like a Messiah of Hollywood.

No longer will the name "JJ" be associated with "dynomite!!" or Good Times. He's certainly got a lot on his plate...good luck to him and I can't wait for some amazing movies.

don't get the hate for Abrams. I never watched lost so maybe that's why?

Dammit JJ focus on one project at a time! You're almost done with Star Trek, now you have to dedicate your whole life to Star Wars *since you sold your soul to Disney and all*

@ Dionysios - Well, I've watched pretty much everything he's done. IMO he's great at setting up shows but then he bails out to do another project and the show suffers for it. Alias was great until the third season, when he focused on Lost. And he is credited for Lost, but the idea for it came from Jeffrey Lieber, Abrams rewrote the pilot to pitch it to network execs and just added the monster and the supernatural elements. His movies are OK I guess... but I think he's overrated on TV, and some of his shows were terrible (Alcatraz, Undercovers).

Honestly I like JJ Evans, I am glad he is getting work these days...

As for his available time on projects other than Star Wars, J.J. is a multi-tasker. Felicity and Alias he has a lot of day to day involvement on, but since then, you basically just gets the ball rolling, directs an episode here and there, and focuses on his feature films. LOST and Fringe were handed over to the writers and producers and he moved on to directing.

He seems like a pretty smart guy, i doubt he'd dive into a project if their was any doubt he couldn't handle it. Haters go [frick] yourselves and do something interesting with your lives.

He's not that much different from Whedon in terms of how his shows operate, there's these little things called showrunners and just because you created the show it doesn't make it you.
@JJ2112 you couldn't be more wrong, once Leiber actually saw the show he felt embarrassed that he pursued credit for it as he came up with a similar show for ABC but Abrams and Lindelof came up with LOST. And then Abrams did the pilot and helped on a handful of episodes but it was mostly Lindelof who controlled LOST.
People forget that Abrams is a producer and just because his name is attached doesn't make it his show, just like with Alcatraz or with Rrevolution. He didn't create the shows he just produced them as he wanted to see the idea come to life and he puts in his two cents every now and again. He's not streteching himself too far as Trek is done and dusted and he's not attached to anything else other than TV but once again that's as a producer which basically means it's just his company making the show. He's going to be great and I can't wait for Ep VII.
