LOST co-creator JJ Abrams and series star Josh Holloway are set to reunite in the 70s-set American Southwest crime series Duster.
Holloway, who played Sawyer in all six seasons of LOST, takes the as-yet-unnamed lead role in Duster as a getaway driver for a crime syndicate.
Holloway is coming off the third season of Paramount Network’s Yellowstone. His recent TV credits also include USA Network’s Colony and an episode of Amazing Stories on Apple TV+.
Shameless writer LaToya Morgan is writing the series with Abrams. Morgan has also written for Parenthood and worked as a writer-producer on Into The Badlands and Turn: Washington’s Spies.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Duster is part of Abrams and his production company Bad Robot’s lucrative new deal with WarnerMedia and HBO to produce new shows and movies for the company.
The new series was announced last year, where it was revealed it would be –
“Set in the 1970’s Southwest and focus on the life of a gutsy getaway driver for a growing crime syndicate goes from awful to wildly, stupidly, dangerously awful.”
The show is one of several headed to HBO Max from Abrams’s Bad Robot company. Other titles include shows based on DC properties like Constantine and Justice League Dark, the series Subject To Change, and the series Overlook, which is a spin-off of The Shining and set at the Overlook Hotel.
Warner Bros. TV will produce Duster, with Abrams and Morgan executive producing. Ben Stephenson is also executive producing, and Rachel Rusch Rich is co-executive producer.
