We're still reeling after the finale of HBO's Westworld, but executive producer J.J. Abrams is getting involved with yet another drama on the network. The Hollywood Reporter posted that Abrams will be producing Glare, an hourlong drama about the colonization of another planet.

The show will be produced under Abrams' Bad Robot Productions, and Javier Gullón will write the script. He and Abrams will executive produce with Ben Stephenson.

Westworld, along with Divorce and Insecure, was just renewed for a second season, and Abrams has even more on his plate. While there is no ETA for Glare, Westworld will arrive in 2018. In a few more weeks, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will premiere on Dec. 16. His other TV ventures included music drama Roadies, Hulu's limited drama 11.22.63 and CBS' Person of Interest.
