Michael Emerson, the actor who played 'Benjamin Linus' in the multi-award winning 'Lost', will reunite with the show's co-creator, Jj Abrams, in a new drama series set to hit screens in 2011, reports Entertainment Weekly. Abrams is set to produce the tentatively titled 'Odd Jobs', which will also feature TERRY O'QUINN, another cast member of Lost.
Emerson and O'Quinn were regularly praised for their on-screen dynamics in the ABC drama, and both actors won Emmy Awards for their highly acclaimed performances. Emerson told Entertainment Weekly, "I really am amazed that what started out as some kidding around on the set of Lost has turned into a network TV reality. I'm still reeling from this sudden turn of events", before adding, "I'm an actor who has never even succeeded in testing for a pilot and here I find myself involved in a project custom-built for Terry and me!"
The show will be made by Abrams production company 'Bad Robots', and will air on NBC - a pilot episode is expected in early 2011. It has been reported that 'Odd Jobs' will be a comedic drama, following the story of two former black ops agents, played by Emerson and O'Quinn.
