Linus and Locke team up for new J.J. Abrams TV series

Ever since Lost started winding down, Michael Emerson has been joking about reuniting with costar Terry O'Quinn for a TV series in which they'd both play suburban hitmen. Turns out it was no joke!

While we have no idea whether the hitmen concept is still part of the equation, the word out of NBC today is that the two men's TV reunion is a go.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC has made a pilot commitment to a new series starring Emerson and O'Quinn. While no details have yet been released, it's been reported that the pair would be playing ex-black-ops agents.

This marks Abrams' second project for NBC, following up on Undercovers, which premieres tonight.

Are you looking forward to seeing Linus and Locke together again for the first time?
