FRINGE Gets a Showrunner

Further securing its status as the TV Addict’s most anticipated new show of the fall season, the Hollywood Reporter continues to live up to its namesake by reporting that J.J. Abrams has tapped LOST and ALIAS executive producer Jeff Pinkner to run FOX’s top-secret Sci-Fi drama FRINGE.

FRINGE centers on FBI agent (Anna Torv), who teams with a guy (Joshua Jackson) and his scientist father (John Noble), to confront the spread of unexplained phenomena.

Another thing they’ll soon be confronting, your very own TV Addict. Who will hopefully be visiting the set, which shoots in the TV Addict’s very own hometown of Toronto in the not-to-distant-future!

    The more the better, I say. I’ll give both this and dollhouse a shot. Last time I didn’t watch something out of misguided dislike of a show runner I missed out on the first showing of Firefly. Uh, oops. Looking forward to hearing more about this one.

    Joey, I knew the first comment would sight DOLLHOUSE, which don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely excited for. But I will say. One showrunner on a dessert island, I pick JJ over Joss simply because of my ALIAS addiction.
