J. Abrams is returning to the small screen with a new space drama script that he is now shopping around.

J.J. Abrams, the man behind cinema's most iconic space franchise in Star Wars, has created a spec script for TV focused on a similarly off-world family.

Details for the show are pretty vague, with sources saying that it's about a world's battle against a monstrous, oppressive force.

According to a new report from The Hollywood Reporter, the TV series would be his first created project for the medium since Fringe, a decade ago. But none of us are J.J Abrams. Her father follows his daughter into this other place and presumably, we'll all be off on a journey of unusual new discoveries there.

Nationals sign Howie Kendrick to two-year, $7 million deal
Murphy had knee surgery in October and wasn't sure of his return when he spoke to the media at Nationals Winterfest in December. Following the 2014 season, he was traded to the Dodgers, where he spent two years before being dealt to Philadelphia.

Warners Bros., Apple and HBO are all reportedly vying for the project.

Based on Abrams' previous TV dramas as a lead creator - Fringe, Lost, Alias and Felicity - it sounds like this could be another mystery-fuelled head-scratcher from the Bad Robot stable. The series will be a joint venture between Warner Bros.

J.J. Abrams has done everything a sci-fi director could ever want to do, directing two Star Trek films and soon enough, two Star Wars films now that he's working on Episode IX.

Abrams has also served as executive producer on "Westworld", "Roadies", "Person of Interest" and "11.22.63". He's repped by CAA and Jackoway Tyerman.
