'Lost' co-stars Michael Emerson and Terry O'Quinn in leads

J.J. Abrams' newest project has landed at NBC.

Ahead of its "Undercovers" premiere Wednesday, the network has made a pilot commitment to a new series starring "Lost" actors Michael Emerson and Terry O'Quinn, New York Magazine's Vulture reports.

According to the report, there was heavy interest from rival broadcast networks.

Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec will be writing and executive producing, while Abrams and Bryan Burk will also serve as exec producers.

Details on the series have not yet been released, though it was reported that the pair would be playing ex-black-ops agents.

Emerson confirmed to THR in an interview that he and O'Quinn were shopping around ideas for a new television series earlier this year.

"It's real. Real people and real writers are batting it around," he said in late August.

This marks NBC's second Abrams project.
