J.J. Abrams helped Steven Spielberg make it through "Super 8." Michelle Obama helped her husband make it through Super Tuesday. These are two completely un-alike things that mean Abrams and the First Lady have nothing in common — until now.
On Monday at the WGA Theater in Beverly Hills, the First Lady will take part in a panel discussion about her Joining Forces initiative. The conversation, which also features "Army Wives" creator Katherine Fugate, will be moderated by Abrams.
The panel is part of a larger event to publicize, as the media advisory states, " the unique challenges many military families face and showcase the families' strength, resilience and service to our nation."
Abrams' "Lost" crony Damon Lindelof will co-host the event along with Fulgate, WGAW President John Wells, "Milk" screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and "Precious" screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher.
