J.J. Abrams extends his Warner Brothers TV deal
Film and TV's most popular multi-hyphenate J.J. Abrams has signed a new development/production deal with Warner Brothers TV.
According to Deadline.com, Abrams and Bryan Burk's Bad Robot Productions will remain at WBTV through 2015. The pact mirrors the extension through 2015 that Abrams inked on the movie side back in February.
The report doesn't give specifics on the financials of the deal, though it says that the lack of online availability for "Person of Interest" was a sticking point. No word on how that resolved.
Bad Robot, whose fall TV slate includes "Revolution," "Person of Interest" and the final season of "Fringe," also received a pilot production commitment earlier this week for FOX project from "Fringe" showrunner J.H. Wyman. That sci-fi drama will focus on a robot cop (but not RoboCop).
