Deadline reports that Jon Favreau, Roberto Orci, Seth Green, and Michael Dougherty are working on a sci-fi drama called “Ex-Comm,” which is “a cross between the paranormal suspense of “The X-Files” and the political intrigue of “The West Wing.” ” ABC snatched up the show and gave it a put-pilot commitment. The series would follow a new administration and its executive committee, who investigate “strange occurrences” and “conspiracy theory truths.” Awesome.
