"Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof is nearing a three-year overall deal with Warner Bros. TV, noting that he’s "ready to come back to TV full time," reports Deadline.com.
Warner Bros. TV is also home to his "Lost" co-creator J.J. Abrams.
Lindelof said the deal "is about me creating my next show," with interest in creating both broadcast and cable shows. After working on several sci-fi films, including "Prometheus" and "Star Trek," Lindelof said, "I think certainly film-wise, I’m spaced out — I think I’ve got the robot-spaceship future bug out of my system.”
As for what TV projects he might create, Lindelof said, "I probably won’t be the guy who creates the next ‘Mad Men’ or ‘Breaking Bad,’ though I love both of these shows,” he said, according to the story. “What I love about television is character-based storytelling, and I want to continue to explore fantastical [ways] of doing it where characters live in a world that is a little skewed.”
Lindelof is about to deliver his script for the feature "1952" to Disney, and if it’s greenlighted, he will produce it while also working on development for WBTV. After that, he will focus on TV, the story says.
