J.J. Abrams Shopping Jonah Nolan’s First TV Series

It was reported today that J.J. Abrams is currently shopping a crime-thriller series created by Jonah Nolan, brother of Christopher and co-writer of both The Dark Knight and The Prestige. Jonah also wrote the short story Memento was based on.

Ausiello’s report states that “according to an insider, one network is extremely interested in the untitled project.” His hunch is that “it won’t be the only one” and I’d have to agree with him. It seems to me that anything with these two names attached would attract attention from just about every network.

That’s not the only thing Abrams is working on getting developed in the near future, however. He is also reportedly preparing Alcatraz, a drama about the island in the San Francisco bay that once served as a federal prison. The script that will be shopped was written by LOST writer/executive producer Elizabeth Sarnoff.

Abrams’ track record alone should serve him well in his quest to get these series on the air. Are you more excited to see what he and Nolan can do together or to see him and Sarnoff head to a new island?
