HBO Max has ordered three new series from J.J. Abrams. 

Multiple outlets confirm that the streamer has given the green light to three drama series from Abrams and Bad Robot Productions. The three series are Overlook, inspired by Stephen King’s The Shining, Duster, conceived by Abrams, and the third is a DC Justice League Dark show.

“What an amazing start to our association with the wildly imaginative Bad Robot team under JJ and Katie,” Kevin Reilly, HBO Max’s Chief Content Officer, said in a statement. “What could be better than an original JJ idea and then Warner Bros. letting them loose on iconic IP from Stephen King and the DC Universe and to provide more must-have programming on HBO Max.”
