Apple Trying to Score JJ Abrams Sci-Fi Series for Apple Music

With all this in mind, it's not too surprising to see the director go back to his TV roots, as reports have come in that Abrams has written a new sci-fi drama and two major companies want it. Assuming Apple is successful in their bid, especially considering the vast amount of resources at their disposal, it is unclear when the show will be debuting, and whether or not it will be part of Apple Music or if it could be folded into Apple TV.

J.J. Abrams is bringing space to the small screen. But this is no mere executive producer credit situation - Abrams is creating his first TV series since Fringe, and has penned the script himself.

Sources say the Abrams drama is about a family-consisting of a mother who works as a scientist, her husband and their young daughter-who all get into a bad auto crash. With the mother in a coma, her daughter rummages through her belongings in the garage and is transported to a far-off land in the middle of a huge battle with a "monstrous, oppressive force".

While Apple and HBO are the leading contenders, Warner Bros. Her father then follows her into this new world. It will be interesting to see where this show lands and if it can replicate the success of Abrams' other shows like Fringe.
