Ben Linus and John Locke will be getting a new series. After down to the wire negotiations with ABC, it looks as if NBC will pick up its second Abrams produced series with ‘Odd Jobs’ starring ‘Lost’ stars Michael Emerson and Terry O’Quinn. The show has received a put-pilot commitment from the network, which means NBC will air the pilot and more than likely order the series.
Little is known about the show other than Emerson and O’Quinn will be the center, and will be former Special Ops agents. It is being written by former ‘Alias’ writers, Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec. The duo is also scribing Abrams’ ‘Mission Impossible: IV’.
