Terry O'Quinn, Michael EmersonBen Linus and Locke have found a new home at NBC.

The hyped Michael Emerson-Terry O'Quinn project from J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot Productions has secured a pilot commitment at the Peacock Network.

According to Vulture, ABC and Fox showed interest in the spy series, but it was NBC who won out. NBC just premiered another Abrams spy drama, 'Undercovers.'

The series, which was going by the name of 'Odd Jobs' but is now untitled, was pitched as a comedic drama with O'Quinn and Emerson as ex-black ops agents.

Frequent Abrams collaborators Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec will serve as writers and executive producers on the pilot with Abrams and Bryan Burk also on board executive producing.

O'Quinn and Emerson floated around the idea of working together for several months. Looks like they're getting their wish.

Tell us: Is NBC the right home for the series?

No! ABC should've gotten this one. They've been so good to JJ with his past 2 big shows, why fix what isn't broken? NBC is such an awful network right now, I understand why they'd want it, but I worry that they'll over-hype it and kill it before it even has a chance. Like what they're currently doing with "The Event".
