J.J. AbramsAdd another diverse project to J.J. Abrams' already-bursting resume: The Ausiello Files reports that the 'Lost' and 'Alias' mastermind, whose new show, 'Undercovers,' premieres on NBC on Sept. 22, is working with Jonathan Nolan on a new crime thriller series.

Nolan, who created the show, co-wrote 'The Dark Knight' and 'The Prestige' with his older brother, 'Inception' director Christopher. Despite the fact that Nolan hasn't ever worked in TV before, with J.J. Abrams behind the project, could there be any more of a guarantee that this series will get picked up in some form or another?

According to Ausiello, the still-untitled show is gaining heavy interest from at least one network.

Abrams is already working on a new series for the next pilot season with former 'Lost' executive producer Elizabeth Sarnoff, so he has quite a bit on his plate. But hey, if the man can create a college drama, a spy thriller and an island mystery with the same degree of success, surely he's good at multi-tasking. Besides, Nolan knows his way around a thriller.

What do you think about this series' potential?
