JJ Abrams is the one of the kings of sci-fi, and his reach knows no bounds. The director helmed the 2009 reboot of Star Trek, and brought the franchise back into the pop culture spotlight.
In 2015, Abrams helmed one of the biggest box offices hits of all time, Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens.
While blockbuster sci-fi flicks have become somewhat of a forte for Abrams, he and his Bad Robot production company became famous for developing groundbreaking television. Lost, one of the most-watched TV shows of all time, was created by JJ Abrams.
The creator made his move back into TV this year, and it resulted in another slam dunk. Along with Jonathon Nolan and Lisa Joy, Abrams brought to life the HBO hit series, Westworld.
The show was a massive success, and it looks like HBO has decided to give Abrams even more original content. According to THR, JJ Abrams and the network have agreed to terms on his newest series - Glare.
As of now, Glare can only be described as "an hourlong drama exploring the colonization of another planet".
UP NEXT: Deadpool Star Arrested
If Abrams' history with the sci-fi genre is any indication, this show should be an incredible venture.
Glare is set to debut in 2018, with Abrams on board as the show's producer. Javier Gullon will write the script for the series. Head of development for Bad Robot, Ben Stephenson will also serve as an executive producer.
