UPDATE: J.J. Abrams Spy Series Causing Bidding War


UPDATE: NBC has officially picked up the project.

The Hollywood Reporter says that NBC is close to landing a drama spec script by J.J. Abrams and Josh Reims that sparked a bidding war last week.

ABC, NBC and CBS were in pursuit of the hot property, from Bad Robot and Warner Bros. TV, with NBC and ABC reportedly going down to the wire.

The show, which revolves around two spies working together who also are husband and wife, returns Abrams to the spy arena, which he mined with his ABC series “Alias.”
