Abrams’s spy spec generating heat

ABC, NBC, CBS bidding on pilot

J.J. Abrams is spying a new adventure/action series, triggering a bidding war at several networks — with NBC the victor.

The creator behind “Alias” partnered with “Felicity” scribe Josh Reims to pen a new hour-long spy thriller; spec script generated heat at ABC, NBC and CBS. Warner Bros. TV, where Abrams’ Bad Robot operations are based, is the studio. Peacock scored the project late Wednesday night.

News of the project, which centers on spies who ate also married, was first reported Wednesday by The Wrap.

Reims’ other credits include “Brothers and Sisters,” as well as Abrams’ “What About Brian.”

Abrams, who’s exec producer on Fox’s “Fringe,” and Bad Robot are also behind a half-hour laffer project from scribe Mike Markowitz; that script was recently sold to Fox.
