We've been hearing a lot about the network bidding war over J.J. Abrams' new spy-fi show, about a married couple who also work together as spies. But Abrams explains it's not an Alias-style tense drama, but more of a lark:

The truth is, it's more of a comedy with drama and action than a straight drama. It's certainly sweeter and more fun in tone than Alias was.

No wonder there's talk of this show appearing next to Chuck. Now the only question is, how science-fictional will this show's crazy gadgets and supervillain plots get? [EW]
