The ever-busy J.J. Abrams has a new pilot in progress, this one featuring a girl with special powers.
The NBC pilot will be directed by the Oscar-nominated Alfonso Cuarón, and written by Mark Friedman (Home of the Brave).
The new pilot’s story will concern a girl “in possession of a great gift/powers – which will come into their own in seven years – and the man who is sprung from prison to protect her from those trying to hunt her down.”
The pilot will be produced by Warner Bros. TV and Bad Robot, with executive producers Abrams, Cuarón, Friedman and Bryan Burk. Kathy Lingg will co-executive produce.
