“Lost” exec producer Damon Lindelof will consult.

EddyKitsisNew Horowitz and Kitsis had the idea for the show seven years ago, prior to coming aboard “Lost.” The pair, who are longtime writing partners, didn’t approach ABC with the pitch until “Lost” finished its run in May.

    Kind of interesting they got the idea for this one year after the Fables comic book came out to much success and acclaim. There’s not a single idea in their show that isn’t a description of what Fables is about. Not one. Oh, and Fables was being worked on to be on ABC, but that fell through. Looks like ABC wanted the idea, but just not the actual Fables.

  15. Megan says:

    I won´t ever, ever, ever watch any project whatsoever with such names as Lindelof, Cuse, Horowitz, Kitsis and Lost attached to it, again ! Never, never, never, ever!
