After Lost, showrunner Damon Lindelof left TV to focus on feature film, writing the screenplay for this month's sci-fi thriller Prometheus and helping creatively with the sequel Star Trek 2. Now, he is returning to TV full time, signing a three-year contract with Warner Bros. Television.
Damon Lindelof returns to TV with 3-year Warner Bros. deal
This is what Damon Lindelof had to say about the deal.
"This is about me creating my next show. I probably won't be the guy who creates the next Mad Men
or Breaking Bad
, though I love both of these shows. What I love about television is character-based storytelling, and I want to continue to explore fantastical way of doing it where characters live in a world that is a little skewed."
Damon Lindelof then remarked that he is not interested in repeating himself, so don't expect Lost Part 2.
"I won't be the one that would come up with the next Lost
. [I will steer clear of any] wackadoo mythology."
Damon Lindelof has not revealed which genre he will be working in, but it's a safe bet it won' be sci-fi.
"I'm spaced out. I think I've got the robot-spaceship future bug out of my system."
Whatever Damon Lindelof is cooking up, don't expect to see it, at the very least, until the fall of 2013.
