New NBC Series Reunites LOST's Linus and Locke
Published: September 23, 2010 - 7:07am
Lost fans everywhere hoped the musings of Michael Emerson and Terry O’Quinn might come to fruition and help ease some of their Lost withdrawals.
For months, the actors, also known as the Benjamin Linus and John Locke, thought their dynamic would make a great TV show. They frequently spoke of a potential “Linus and Locke Show” during several Lost finale interviews. Well, it looks as if rumor has become reality: despite heavy interest from ABC and Fox, the Bad Robot produced spy series has found a home at NBC. The series, pitched as a comedic drama about two ex-black ops agents, was originally called Odd Jobs, but has since dropped the title.
J.J. Abrams’ past collaborators Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec (Alias) have teamed again to write and executive produce the pilot, while Abrams and Bryan Burk are also involved executive producing.
Further details are hard to come by, but those suffering from post-Lost symptoms may breathe a bit easier now.
