FOX gives OK to $10 million JJ Abrams pilot
JJ Abrams, of Lost, Alias, and Felicity fame, has another TV show coming up, this time on FOX.
More interesting than the plot of the show is the price tag for the pilot episode: $10 million. That's just for the pilot episode. I hope it doesn't turn into one of those shows that has a great-looking, expensive pilot episode (*cough* Smith *cough), hooks viewers in, and then the rest of the show falls apart. But I have faith in Abrams. He has a great track record, enthusiasm, and is an actual fan of the genre and not just a producer, so I'll give this a shot.
