Now with four big-budget spaceship movies – two “Star Treks,” “Cowboys & Aliens” and “Prometheus” -- under his belt, “Lost” co-creator Damon Lindelof says he’s ready to come back to TV full-time, finalizing a new 3-year deal at Warner Bros. TV.
That’s where the other “Lost” co-creator, J.J. Abrams, has situated his TV shop since 2006.
(For those who follow my radio adventures, there’s a possibility Lindelof will be on the air with myself and Mr. KERN Saturday evening to talk about “Prometheus.”)
Lindelof, who got his start scripting series like “Wasteland,” “Nash Bridges” and “Crossing Jordan,” has been away from TV since “Lost” left the air two years ago.
From Deadline Hollywood:
“I think certainly film-wise, I’m spaced out, I think I’ve got the robot-spaceship future bug out of my system.” On the TV side, “I probably won’t be the guy who creates the next Mad Men or Breaking Bad, though I love both of these shows. What I love about television is character-based storytelling, and I want to continue to explore fantastical way of doing it where characters live in a world that is a little skewed.” Don’t expect a new Lost from him. “I won’t be the one that would come up with the next Lost,” Lindelof said, adding that he has no interest in doing more shows with “wackadoo mythology.”
Lindelof may simultaneously produce “1952,” a mysterious potential movie he wrote for Disney with Entertainment Weekly writer Jeff Jensen, as he resumes his TV career.
