Damon Lindelof is setting up shop at Warner Bros. TV.
The co-creator of Lost, who co-wrote Ridley Scott‘s upcoming Prometheus, is nearing a rich three-year deal with the studio, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. He will join frequent collaborator J.J. Abrams at the studio, which also counts such TV heavyweights as Greg Berlanti, Josh Schwartz and Kevin Williamson. As a part of the deal, Lindelof will develop new series for the studio.
Lindelof previously signed with ABC Studios, which produced Lost for six seasons. He didn’t create any other series with the studio but helped develop last season’s successful Once Upon a Time with fellow Lost writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. (ABC renewed Once for a second season in May.)
His movie credits, on top of Prometheus, include the upcoming sequel to 2009’s Star Trek and Disney’s 1952 — a sci-fi project that recently landed Brad Bird as director and earned Lindelof a reported seven figures. Before his work on Lost, Lindelof wrote for Crossing Jordan and Nash Bridges.
The pact comes three months after Lindelof’s fellow Lost showrunner Carlton Cuse joined A&E’s Bates Motel, a prequel to Psycho.
Lindelof is repped by CAA and Myman Greenspan.
