J.J. Abrams, a man chemically designed to create television shows, has another pilot in the works and this one will star veteran TV actor Gerald McRaney.

He's been picked for a pilot called Undercovers, a spy action show described as a cross between Mr. and Mrs. Smith and The Bourne Identity.

McRaney will play a CIA boss overseeing a husband and wife spy couple. Abrams wrote the pilot with TV scribe Josh Reims who's also written scripts for ABC's Brothers & Sisters and Dirty Sexy Money. Abrams may also step in the director's chair for the pilot episode commissioned by NBC.

Sounds like a great show to put on at 10:00 PM. Oh, no, wait. Can't do that because of Leno. Once again NBC shoots itself in the foot.

Sounds like NBC is paying a fortune for the first show created by JJ Abrams that flops bigtime.

If by "bigtime" you mean it will air less than 8 episodes, then yes, you win. But if it makes it to 9, you loose. 6 Degrees aired 8.
