    Bad Robot gets ABC pilot

    Abrams, Ling to produce untitled drama

    ABC has given a put pilot order to an untitled drama from "Grey's Anatomy" scribe Jill Soloway and J.J. Abrams' bad Robot shingle.

    Project, from Warner Bros. TV (where Bad Robot is based), revolves around a cable access psychologist who is forced to take a job as a mobile notary.
    Soloway will write and exec produce, while Abrams and Bad Robot's Kathy Lingg will exec produce. ABC has attached a penalty to the project.

    Soloway currently serves as a consulting producer on "Grey's Anatomy" and also has consulted on "Dirty Sexy Money." She spent four years as a writer/co-exec producer on "Six Feet Under" and is adapting the book "Pledged: The Secret Life of Sororities" for Paramount.

    Onstage, Soloway helped create the Chicago-based "The Real Live Brady Bunch," and she also created the "Sit n' Spin" showcase in Los Angeles. She also wrote the essay collection "Tiny Ladies in Shiny Pants."

    Soloway's other TV credits include "Baby Blues","The Oblongs" and "Nikki."

    J.J. Abrams is returning to ABC with "Boundaries," a one-hour comedy project written by "Six Feet Under" writer-producer Jill Soloway.

    ABC has handed out a rich put pilot commitment to the project, which marks the first major broadcast commitment to come from the blockbuster six-year pact Abrams' Bad Robot inked with Warner Bros. TV in July 2006.

    Abrams had been a fixture on ABC, where he has executive produced several series -- "Lost," "Alias," "What About Brian" and "Six Degrees" -- before he left his longtime TV home ABC Studios in summer 2006 to go to WBTV. Abrams has been busy on the feature side lately, prepping the new "Star Trek" movie for Paramount.
