J.J. Abrams is adapting a Rod Serling script as a miniseries
J.J. Abrams, already dominating long-form TV and movies, is trying his hand with what used to be called a "miniseries."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Abrams and his Bad Robot TV shingle have acquired the rights to the unproduced Rod Serling script "The Stops Along The Way" as a potential "event series" for TV.
All details about the project and Abrams' specific involvement are, naturally, shrouded in mystery.
In addition to his big screen work on the "Star Wars" and "Star Trek" franchises, Abrams has "Revolution," "Person of Interest" and the upcoming "Almost Human" and "Believe" on the small screen.
