J.J. Abrams is developing a one-hour comedy pilot for ABC with Boundaries, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The series will be written by Six Feet Under writer-producer Jill Soloway.
Abrams had been a fixture on ABC, where he has executive produced several series -- Lost, Alias, What About Brian and Six Degrees -- before he left his longtime TV home ABC Studios in summer 2006 to go to WBTV. Abrams has been busy on the feature side lately, prepping the new Star Trek movie for Paramount.
Boundaries centers on a failing cable access psychologist who rediscovers her true purpose when she is forced to take a job as a mobile notary.
