Lost and Fringe Creator J.J. Abrams Signs On For A New Fox Medical Comedy

Would You Watch a J.J. Abrams Medical Comedy?

J.J. Abrams, the king of TV sci-fi, is looking for laughs. The man behind Lost and Fringe just signed on to executive produce a "comedic medical show" for FOX. Random!

I've always been a huge fan of Abrams, but I've never thought of him as a funny ha-ha kinda guy. Yes, his shows have had their goofy moments — Felicity's Richard used to always make me guffaw — but this is the same guy who creates smoke monsters. This is a total departure from his usual territory.

Not that I won't watch. Shows based around hospitals may be a dime a dozen these days, but with the old Scrubs that I loved on its way out, this could be a potential worthy replacement. Plus, everything that Abrams touches seems to turn into ratings gold.

What do you guys think of this news? Will you watch J.J. Abrams's new comedy when it comes out?

I'll give anything JJ Abrams does a chance. Doesn't mean I'll keep watching, but I'll at least watch the pilot.

Abrams rocks sci-fi, and I don't think he could create a show that did not have a some sort sci-fi element to it. Even Felicity had science fiction at the end. Just don't think it would work.

"Plus, everything that Abrams touches seems to turn into ratings gold." I think you may have forgotten "What About Brian." :)
