J.J. Abrams and Warner Bros. TV are re-upping their partnership.
Continuing a collaboration that began in 2006, WBTV and Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions — which he runs with Bryan Burk — have reached a new multiyear, overall deal. It calls for Bad Robot to continue developing new TV projects with Abrams and Burk serving as executive producers.
Bad Robot's current shows include the hit CBS drama "Person of Interest," Fox's "Fringe," which is entering its last season, and NBC's new drama "Revolution."
All Bad Robot shows produced by WBTV will continue to be distributed globally by Warner Bros. International Television Distribution.
Bad Robot also has a first-look film deal with Paramount Pictures, which produced Abrams' "Star Trek" reboot and its upcoming sequel.
News of Abrams' new deal comes just a day after word of a new deal with Warner Bros. for Chuck Lorre, co-creator of "Two and a Half Men" and "Big Bang Theory."
