JJ Abrams new series "Fringe"

Post by tracker on Mon Sep 08, 2008 9:25 pm

Very Happy Tomorrow (Sept 9th) on FOX begins JJ Abrams newest project "Fringe". I don't know if or when it will be on in the UK. I read one review earlier today and it was good. Here is a summary from the Fox website:

From J.J. Abrams ("Lost"), Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, the team behind "Star Trek," "Mission: Impossible III" and "Alias," comes a new series that will thrill, terrify and explore the blurring line between the possible and the impossible.

When an international flight lands at Boston's Logan Airport with no signs of life, FBI Special Agent OLIVIA DUNHAM (Anna Torv) is called in to investigate as part of an inter-agency task force. After her partner, Special Agent JOHN SCOTT (Mark Valley), is nearly killed during the investigation, a desperate Olivia searches frantically for someone to help, leading her to DR. WALTER BISHOP (John Noble), our generation's Einstein. There's only one catch: he's been institutionalized for the last 17 years, and the only way to question him requires pulling his estranged son PETER (Joshua Jackson) in to help.
When Olivia's investigation leads to multi-billion dollar corporation Massive Dynamic and its manipulative corporate executive, NINA SHARP (Blair Brown), our unlikely trio, along with Department of Homeland Security Agent PHILLIP BROYLES (Lance Reddick) and FBI Agents CHARLIE FRANCIS (Kirk Acevedo) and ASTRID FARNSWORTH (Jasika Nicole), will discover that what happened on Flight 627 is only a small piece of a larger, more shocking truth.

The FRINGE pilot is directed by Emmy Award-winning Alex Graves ("The West Wing"), and the series is produced by Warner Bros. Television and Bad Robot Productions. J.J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner and Bryan Burk serve as executive producers.

I know, Tracker!!! I'm real excited about it! I just hope it isn't too much like the X-Files, but known JJ... I doubt it. This very well could be a new Lost type thing. It doubt it will be as good or as original, but Lost set the bar pretty high. I'm still excited about it though.

I'm actually concerned Abrams might end up being a one hit wonder, sort of like M. Night Shyamalan (although I guess he had a few hits).

I hope your wrong Smokette. I'm tired of reruns and am looking forward to a good new series to keep me busy until Lost is back.

Well, smokette, JJ created Alias which was a huge hit before Lost was. So, JJ is at least a 2 hit wonder. I am sure that Star Trek will be a huge success too. In a weird way, Cloverfield was kind of a big success. It surpassed what he expected to make from it. MI 3 was considered one of the better MI movies... JJ has it going on... I wouldn't worry about him. I know what you mean though, I'm afraid that Fringe may not live up to the hype.

The following is the link to the Home Page and Blog for 'Fringe'. Very interesting information, and they appear to be setting the show up, for similar response to 'Lost' from the viewers. So, we shall see how it fares in the court of public opinion.

JJ Abrahams is accomplished and quite brilliant, actually. Hardly what I would refer to as 'one hit wonder'! Shocked

It will be airing on Sky1 in the fall (it's not specified exactly when), so you guys get to watch Fringe and Lost on the same channel. Lucky Limeys.

Apparently (from some accounts I've read) Sky1 really fought for the rights from Fox.

They would....SkyOne is a subscription only channel....if you dont have Sky Satelite service (we have Virgin cable instead) you cant watch basically. All the other channels are shared, so you can get Living, SciFi, and all the other channels on both Sky and Virgin (who are, incidently, the only alternatives to Terrestial TV or Freeview), but Sky and Virgin also have thier own channels you can only watch if you subsribe to their service.

It never used to be like that....you used to be able to view Sky's own channels on Virgin too, and Lost used to be aired on Channel 4....but as soon as Sky got thier hands on it they took thier channels away from Virgin!!

So now Sky and Virgin are locked in a battle to get the best programmes on their own channels....its a joke.

And I thought we had it bad here in the states with Time Warner and Direct Tv. If anyone messed with our TV programming like they do in the UK... well, there would be a revolt amoung the US citizens.

There seems to be a lot of monopoly in UK broadcasting. I know the BBC was the only choice in radio for decades.

In today's issue of USA Today re:Fringe " ........ now adds the best new show of the fall, Fringe" ...... Fringe premier lacks the beauty and resonance of Lost, but it provides a solid framework for a series, which is what a pilot is supposed to do.......it should be fun to ride along.......This Fall, that could be the best offer you get"

Tracker, I know I will be checking it out tonight. geek
Here is a link that has a little background about this new show, on Scientific American.
It is enough for me to know it was created by J.J. Abrams. Very Happy
