LOS ANGELES, Feb 14 — The famous filmmaker — who directed pictures such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Mission Impossible 3 and co-created the Lost TV show — is developing the sci-fi comedy They Both Die at the End for the US broadcaster.

After producing Westworld and Person of Interest, JJ Abrams has another small screen project in the pipeline. The filmmaker is working on a half-hour series based on the Adam Silvera book, They Both Die at the End, Variety reports.

The story is set in the near future. Two teenage boys, Mateo and Rufus, receive a phone call telling them they are about to live their last day on Earth and to make the most of it.

Chris Kelly (The Other Two) is writing and will executive produce alongside J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions.

The show does not yet have a premiere date. — AFP-Relaxnews
