"Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof is reportedly close to inking a massive overall deal with Warner Bros. TV. The full-time deal would make the "Prometheus" scribe an in-house series creator for the studio, where he would join the likes of J.J. Abrams, Greg Berlanti, Josh Schwartz and Kevin Williamson.
Lindelof was previously at ABC. That studio produced six massively successful seasons of "Lost," but Lindelof did not create another series for the network. The Warner Bros. deal, which THR describes as "rich," would be for three years.
“I think certainly film-wise, I’m spaced out, I think I’ve got the robot-spaceship future bug out of my system," Lindelof told Deadline.com. “I probably won’t be the guy who creates the next 'Mad Men' or 'Breaking Bad,' though I love both of these shows. What I love about television is character-based storytelling, and I want to continue to explore fantastical way of doing it where characters live in a world that is a little skewed."
The screenwriter had previously written for "Crossing Jordan" and "Nash Bridges." He's kept busy since "Lost" aired its finale episode on May 23, 2010, drafting the screenplay for "Cowboys and Aliens," the sequel to "Star Trek" and, as previously mentioned, "Prometheus."
