Despite the fact he’s currently knee-deep in rewrites for Star Wars: Episode IX ahead of filming later this year, J.J. Abrams has found the time to pen a new sci-fi TV drama entitled Demimonde, which has been given a straight-to-series order from HBO.
According to THR, the series is described by HBO as “an epic and intimate sci-fi fantasy drama” and follows “a family — consisting of a mother who works as a scientist, her husband and their young daughter — who all get into a terrible car crash. After the mother winds up in a coma, her daughter begins digging through her experiments in the basement and winds up being transported to another world amid a battle against a monstrous, oppressive force. Her father then follows her into this new world.”
Abrams, who already has a relationship with HBO through Westworld, which he executive produces, has written the script for Deminmonde – the first small screen project he’s penned since 2008’s Fringe. He’s also executive produce through his Bad Robot Productions banner.
