J.J. Abrams is reportedly developing a new hour-long television crime drama.

Pulp will be set "in a slightly heightened reality", according to TVLine.

Former Brothers & Sisters showrunners Monica Breen and Alison Schapker have written the script for the project and will also executive produce. The pair have previously worked with Abrams on Alias, Lost and Fringe.

Abrams's production company Bad Robot will begin negotiating with networks for the show in the near future.

The company already has projects in development with CBS, Fox and NBC, including a new crime series from writer Jonah Nolan, prison drama Alcatraz and a comedy-drama starring former Lost actors Michael Emerson and Terry O'Quinn.
