JJ Abrams’ new TV series – and it starts on a plane!

By Mark O’Neill

It’s the hotly anticipated new TV series of 2008. It’s written and created by JJ Abrams (creator and writer of “Lost” and “Alias”) so the hype is big. Also like “Lost”, it starts on a plane.

“Fringe”, which starts on August 26th on Fox, is all about Flight 627 which lands at Boston Airport with every passenger dead from a flesh eating virus.   Enter the FBI to investigate.

Of course being JJ Abrams, it won’t be long before we are knee-deep in X-Files-style government conspiracies, people dying left right and center….expect a great TV series as “Lost” starts to wind down.   Let’s just hope though that Fox doesn’t cancel it in favour of another reality show.
