This in from zap2it: ~~~~ Abrams Brings Bounty to ABC Wed, Jun 25, 2003 12:24 PM PDT LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - J.J. Abrams, the writer-producer behind "Felicity" and "Alias," is developing a new drama for ABC. Focusing on the intense lives of bounty hunters, the show is on target for a fall 2004 launch, with Touchstone TV producing. Abrams will bring one of his favorite actors along for the ride. "Alias" and "Felicity" co-star Greg Grunberg will topline the new series. In the meantime, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Grunberg, who plays agent Eric Weiss on the current ABC spy drama, will become a regular when the series returns for its third season. Reportedly Abrams gave ABC first crack at his new drama in recognition of the network's support for "Alias," which has remained stable in its Sunday night timeslot despite inconsistant ratings. Abrams conceived the idea for a bounty hunter series even before the Mexican capture of fugitive Andrew Luster put Duane "Dog" Chapman and other members of the profession in the limelight. Abrams will write the pilot and serve as executive producer and in addition to starring duties, Grunberg will produce. When he isn't dealing with college love triangles and espionage-fueled family dischord, Abrams' screenwriting career, which includes films like "Regarding Henry" and "Joy Ride," continues apace. He wrote the most recent draft of the long-delayed "Superman" project. ~~~~ Gee, I hope this doesn't take too much of Mr Abrams' attention from Alias!
