It looks like JJ Abrams isn’t planning to take time off before plunging into his second Star Wars movie. The actor/producer’s first TV series since Fringe was just picked up by HBO.
The series is titled Demimonde, which roughly translates to Half-World in French. The translation is obviously correct, looking at the basic plot details for the series. Demimonde will reportedly follow a father and daughter who get trapped in a new word after their scientist wife/mother slips into a coma.
This isn’t the first of JJ Abrams’ shows that HBO has picked up. Abrams executive produces the sci-fi series Westworld, which found a massive audience for the network when the first season aired in 2016.
I’m not sure when Demimonde is expected to premiere, although I wouldn’t expect it anytime soon. Like I said, JJ Abrams is a pretty busy guy these days.
