NBC Picks Up J.J. Abrams’ Show with Michael Emerson and Terry O’Quinn

J.J. Abrams’ new NBC drama Undercovers premieres in just an hour on the east coast, but the Peacock has already decided: It wants more J.J.! The network has landed the rights to the new Michael Emerson-Terry O’Quinn show from Abrams’ Bad Robot that Vulture told you about Monday. NBC got the project despite strong interest from ABC and Fox, both of which were intrigued by the idea of Ben Linus and John Locke’s alter-egos teaming up again. NBC has made a pilot commitment to the show, which had been known as Odd Jobs but is now technically untitled. The fine print: Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec (Alias) are writers/exec producers, while Abrams and Bryan Burk are also exec producers. With Fox and CBS already developing new Abrams shows, we’re hoping the Bad Robot has one more series up its sleeve so that the folks at ABC aren’t left feeling lonely.
