We’ve uncovered three, rather cool, videos from JJ Abrams’ upcoming TV series Fringe. It debuts this fall, and from what we’ve seen of it the show looks like a more science based version of The X-Files. Apparently the first episode starts with a plane crash. We know Abrams’ has a gift for those. Take a look:
Fringe, the new show from JJ Abrams, figures heavily into Fox’s fall television schedule. They’re expecting big things from it, and they’re already prepping their promotional campaign. We’ve dug up 5 really cool posters for the television show, which you should start seeing in print ads and on billboards near you soon. Take a look:
He changed the way we look at Science Fiction on television with Lost, now J.J. Abrams is moving to the Fox Network with an all new, sci fi thriller. Next season Fox will debut his new show, Fringe.
Here’s how Fox describes the show:
When an international flight lands at Boston’s Logan Airport and the passengers and crew have all died grisly deaths, FBI Special Agent Olivia Dunham (newcomer Anna Torv) is called in to investigate. After her partner, Special Agent John Scott (Mark Valley, “Boston Legal”), is nearly killed during the investigation, a desperate Olivia searches frantically for someone to help, leading her to Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble, “Lord of the Rings: Return of the King”), our generation’s Einstein. There’s only one catch: he’s been institutionalized for the last 20 years, and the only way to question him requires pulling his estranged son Peter (Joshua Jackson, “Dawson’s Creek”) in to help.
When Olivia’s investigation leads her to manipulative corporate executive NINA SHARP (Blair Brown, “Altered States”), our unlikely trio along with fellow FBI Agents Phillip Broyles (Lance Reddick, “The Wire”), Charlie Francis (Kirk Acevedo, “Oz”) and Astrid Farnsworth (Jasika Nicole, “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”) will discover that what happened on Flight 627 is only a small piece of a larger, more shocking truth.
JJ Abrams, the guy responsible for such fine television programming as Alias and Lost, has a new science fiction series coming to television. Oddly enough, it sounds an awful lot like an old series.
Variety says his new show is Fringe, and it’s been picked up by the Fox network. The show is about a young, female FBI agent working with an oddball scientist to investigate unexplained medical and scientific phenomenon.
Sound familiar? Yeah.
Former Dawson’s Creek star Joshua Jackson will play the male lead in the show’s 2-hour pilot, with Anna Torv starring opposite him as FBI Agent Olivia Warren. That’s Anna in the picture with this story.
