#lost Damon Lindelof Nears Big Overall Deal With Warner Bros. TV (Exclusive)
The “Lost” co-creator and “Prometheus” scribe is close to a three-year pact to create new series for the studio.
Damon Lindelof is setting up shop at Warner Bros. TV.
The co-creator of Lost, who co-wrote Ridley Scott’s upcoming Prometheus, is nearing a rich three-year deal with the studio, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. He will join frequent collaborator J.J. Abrams at the studio, which also counts such TV heavyweights as Greg Berlanti, Josh Schwartz and Kevin Williamson. As a part of the deal, Lindelof will develop new series for the studio.

Lindelof previously signed with ABC Studios, which produced Lost for six seasons. He didn’t create any other series with the studio but helped develop last season’s successful Once Upon a Time with fellow Lost writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. (ABC renewed Once for a second season in May.)
His movie credits, on top of Prometheus, include the upcoming sequel to 2009’s Star Trek and Disney’s 1952 — a sci-fi project which recently landed Brad Bird as director and earned Lindeloff a reported seven figures. Before his work on Lost, Lindelof wrote for Crossing Jordan and Nash Bridges.
The pact comes three months after Lindelof’s fellow Lost showrunner Carlton Cuse joined A&E’s Bates Motel, a prequel to Psycho.
Emilie de Ravin is getting lost in a whole new fantasy world. On the Valentine’s Day episode of ABC’s Once Upon a Time, tentatively scheduled for February 12, the former Lost star steps into the slippers of Beauty and the Beast’s Belle. “Emilie projects a very natural strength and warmth, which are characteristics we wanted to explore with Belle,” explains Adam Horowitz, who, along with writing and producing partner Edward Kitsis, kicked off a six-year stint on Lost writing a Claire scene.
While this take on Beautywill veer from the traditional tale as old as time, Edward says Belle will interact with her father, crazy old Maurice, the brutish Gaston and, of course, the Beast. (Alas, no singing dinnerware.) “We have a fun spin on it,” he says. Later this season, expect visits from Aladdin and his genie!
So apparently I was right! I did see Aladdin’s lamp at the end of the ep last Sunday!
Hmm… considering that Horowitz and Kitsis were from Lost, I’m guessing they’re leaving these “bread crumbs” in every episode now! Effing cool.
