Abrams Sells New Pilot with Potter Director Attached
JJ Abrams continues his slow march to be executive producer of all television shows as he has signed up Alfonso Cuaron to direct the pilot of his next potential NBC series. Cuaron is the director of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and received Oscar nominations for writing Children of Men and Y Tu Mama Tambien. The untitled series is described as being "about a girl in possession of a great gift/powers — which will come into their own in seven years — and the man who is sprung from prison to protect her from those trying to hunt her down." The pilot episode will be used to show off a show's potential to entice a network to pay for an entire season of a show for the 2013-2014 season.
