JJ Abrams is set to work with HBO on new Sci-Fi drama Demimonde.

The show which will be co-produced by HBO and Abrams’ Bad Robot was the subject of interest from a lot of parties but HBO came out on top. This will be the third collaboration between Bad Robot and HBO the previous two are Westworld and the upcoming Lovecraft County.

Demimonde, French for “half-world,”comes from Alexandre Dumas’ Le Demi-Monde and refers to “a distinct circle or world that is often an isolated part of a larger world” or “the world of prostitution.”
