ABC Lands J.J. Abrams’ Boundaries


J.J. Abrams is returning to ABC with “Boundaries,” a one-hour comedy project written by “Six Feet Under” writer-producer Jill Soloway.

Abrams had been a fixture on ABC, where he has executive produced several series — “Lost,” “Alias,” “What About Brian” and “Six Degrees” — before he left his longtime TV home ABC Studios in summer 2006 to go to WBTV.

“Boundaries,” from Bad Robot and WBTV, centers on a failing cable access psychologist who rediscovers her true purpose when she is forced to take a job as a mobile notary.

In addition to writing the project, Soloway is executive producing with Bad Robot’s Abrams and Bryan Burk. Kathy Lingg will serve as producer.

Soloway is working on ABC’s hit medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy” as a consulting producer.
