His most recent feature, Star Trek Into Darkness, will bow this May.
In 2005, Abrams received Emmy Awards for Outstanding Directing in a Drama Series and Outstanding Drama Series, both for Lost. He also received Emmy nominations for writing the Alias and Lost pilots. In addition, Abrams composed the theme music for Alias, Fringe, Lost, Person of Interest, and Revolution, and he co-wrote the theme song for Felicity. Abrams serves as Executive Producer of CBS’s Person of Interest, Fox’s Fringe, and NBC’s Revolution.
