There’s no returning to Lost‘s mysterious island, but this isn’t the end for the partnership of Terry O’Quinn and Michael Emerson.

NBC has just picked up a new pilot from Lost co-creator J.J. Abrams starring the men better known as John Locke and Benjamin Linus, respectively, according to Vulture.

 The untitled project, originally named Odd Jobs, is described as a comedic drama about former black-ops agents.

Alias vets Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec will serve as writers and executive producers, with Abrams and Bryan Burk (Undercovers) also executive-producing.

O’Quinn, 58, won the Emmy for best supporting actor in a drama for Lost back in 2007. Emerson, 56, took home the same honor in 2009. Both were nominated for the series this past year.

What do you think about the Locke-Linus reunion?


Exclusive: ‘Lost’ star Jorge Garcia returns to ABC

5 hours ago | EW – Ausiello Files | See recent EW.com – The Ausiello Files news »

Jorge Garcia had to go back… to ABC!

The ex-Lost Mvp has signed on to guest star in an episode of the Matthew Perry midseason comedy Mr. Sunshine, sources confirm to me exclusively.

Garcia will play a staffer at the second-rate San Diego sports arena that Perry’s character manages. He’ll appear in the pilot, which is undergoing some retooling.

It’s not difficult to figure out how Garcia’s casting came about. Perry, who also serves as an exec producer on Sunshine, is an obsessive Lost fan.

Bottom line: Hurley’s back, yo!

10 Shows That Changed TV Since ’90


Lost (2004-2010)

The great gamble that paid off: a six-season puzzle on an epic scale, with scores of characters and intricate plotting that truly put the myth in ”mythology.” Lost altered our view of the size and shape and momentum a TV series could maintain. When it ended, it was common to say that there’ll never be another show like it. I prefer to think the lesson of Lost is that another unique experiment can come along and become a mass-audience favorite.
