J.J. Abrams and Ben Linus Team Up for CBS Pilot


Michael Emerson, who played Benjamin Linus on Lost, will star in a new CBS drama executive produced by J.J. Abrams. Person of Interest is about an ex-CIA agent who teams up with a mysterious billionaire — played by Emerson — in order to fight crime. Earlier this pilot season, Emerson was teamed up with Abrams — and fellow Lost expat Terry O'Quinn — on a comedy about two black-ops agents, and that may still be on the table. So there is life after Lost, after all. [Deadline]
