JJ Abrams Finds Lead For CW Pilot!

| Filed under: TV NewsEtc.

Zach Abel JJ Shelter

We are SO ready for a JJ Abrams CW pilot!!

The more time passes, the more it starts to come together, too… they just got their lead!

Zachary Abel has nailed the lead role in the Shelter pilot. He'll be playing alongside Malese Jow from the Vampire Diaries.

Here's what it's about:

'Shelter is set at historic New England summer resort Shelter Bay where the new and returning staff attend to the practical, emotional and often comical needs of the guests while navigating friendships, rivalries and romances of their own.'

With smoke monsters and time travel!

Wait — no? Neither of those??

Weird! We expected something a little more… out there… from JJ!

Either way, it sounds fab!

Congrats, Zach!

    JJ Abrams did Felicity so this will be like going back to his roots, away from time traveling and strange monsters.

    excited :) he's beautiful.

    Um, Dawson's Creek, anyone??

    Even Felicity had time travel in it's final five episodes…The fact that they made the house "historic" makes me think there could be some light mythology…
