J.J. AbramsThe failure of 'Undercovers' isn't holding J.J. Abrams back, rather the 'Lost' mastermind is going into creative overdrive and preparing another new series, 'Pulp.'

According to TVLine, Abrams' Bad Robot is working on a crime drama set in a heightened reality, sort of like the flick 'Pulp Fiction.'

Former 'Brothers & Sisters' showrunners Monica Breen and Alison Schapker wrote the script, and would serve as executive producers on 'Pulp.' The duo have worked with Abrams on 'Alias,' 'Lost' and 'Fringe.'

This isn't the only project Abrams is prepping. Besides 'Pulp,' he's at work on 'Alcatraz,' a drama at Fox that has 'Lost' alumnus Jorge Garcia as part of the cast, and the Terry O'Quinn/Michael Emerson project at NBC. Abrams' latest creation, 'Undercovers,' failed to capture a solid audience on NBC, despite being one of the fall's buzziest new shows. His other show, 'Fringe,' is being moved to Fridays on Fox.

Bad Robot could begin shopping 'Pulp' to networks as soon as next week.
