by     Posted 3 years, 280 days ago

There are few people in Hollywood busier than J.J. Abrams, who constantly seems to be juggling a handful of projects in both film and television, whether as a producer, a writer or a director, or some combination of the three. Currently, he is an executive producer on the Fox drama Fringe, which moves to Friday nights on January 21st. He is also developing Alcatraz, Person of Interest, Odd Jobs and Pulp for various networks. And, he is getting ready to make the decision about whether or not to direct the sequel to the hugely successful feature film re-imagining of Star Trek.

While at the party to celebrate the Fox/FX portion of the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, J.J. Abrams talked about his thoughts on the Lost finale, how he feels about the move to Friday nights for Fringe, why he thinks Undercovers failed, and how excited he is to get started on the pilot for Alcatraz on January 19th. He also said that audiences should see a trailer for Super 8 in March, and that he hopes to have made his decision about whether to return to the director’s chair for Star Trek 2 by then. Check out what he had to say after the jump:

Okay, so the creator of Lost isn’t adapting Quentin Tarantino’s fantastic feature film into a TV series, but J.J. Abrams is developing Pulp, a new crime drama that is “set in a slightly heightened reality.” TV Line also mentions that Monica Breen and Alison Schapker (who previously worked with Abrams on Alias, Lost and Fringe) wrote the script and will executive produce the series as well.

No story details are mentioned, but hopefully we’ll find out soon since Bad Robot will be taking the potential series pitch to networks very soon. This is just one of many projects from Abrams being developed for the next season of TV, so stay tuned to see which ones actually stick around.
