The studio has re-upped its deal with Abrams' Bad Robot Productions, first inked in 2006, for an additional three years.

The exclusive agreement keeps Abrams and longtime partner Bryan Burk developing with the studio through 2015, with both serving as executive producers on new television projects.

On top of new NBC project, which has a put pilot agreement at the network, Abrams and Bad Robot are soon launching the drama Revolution on NBC's fall lineup.

It will be the third Bad Robot series -- joining CBS' Person of Interest and Fox's exiting drama Fringe -- airing on broadcast this fall. Previous collaborations between Bad Robot and Warner Bros. include one-offs Alcatraz and Undercovers.

Warner Bros. extended its deal with another one of its high-profile executive producers, Chuck Lorre, on Tuesday. His new agreement is for four years and sees him expanding projects to drama and cable.
