Alongside Into the Badlands writer LaToya Morgan, he is working on a series called Duster, set in the 1970s in the American Southwest.
As reported by Variety, this will be a reunion for Abrams and Josh Holloway, who famously played Sawyer on the infamously twisty-turny 2000s TV series Lost. In this series, he will play the central role of a getaway driver for a quickly-growing crime syndicate.
It's not the only project that JJ Abrams has in the pipeline for HBO Max, though. He also has a new series based on the DC Comics character Constantine, as well as an adaptation of the Justice League Dark comics, featuring a bunch of antiheroes teaming up as an alternative to Superman and the gang.
Speaking of Justice League, the Snyder Cut of the 2017 film, called Zack Snyder's Justice League, accidentally leaked on HBO Max over a week before its release date.
And we don't mean on some dodgy websites, we mean viewers were able to access the new version on the official platform itself.
HBO Max hasn't been announced for the UK at the time of writing, so it'll be interesting to see where all these projects will end up.
