UPDATE: J.J. Abrams Pitching O’Quinn and Emerson Show


UPDATE: The pilot has been picked up by NBC.

Last month, we mentioned that former “Lost” stars Michael Emerson and Terry O’Quinn were shopping around ideas for a TV show together.

It looks like they have some excellent backing now, as Vulture reports that J.J. Abrams and frequent collaborators Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec (“Alias,” Mission: Impossible 4) began pitching the comedic drama to the networks last week that would have the two actors playing former black-ops agents.

According to the site, the potential show carries the working title of “Odd Jobs.”
