The Onion is reporting that the Smoke Monster from Lost is getting his own spin-off series entitled Where There’s Smoke.
The new series, a half-hour family-oriented comedy called Where There’s Smoke, is touted by ABC as the new anchor of its Thursday-night lineup.
“Somewhere between the smoke monster’s first appearance on Lost— when it was depicted as a strange unseen force uprooting trees—and that episode in season three where it grabbed Mr. Eko and smashed him against the ground until he was dead, this character became the breakout star of the show,” said Stephen McPherson, president of ABC Entertainment. “And that’s exactly why we’re so excited about Where There’s Smoke. We get to see the monster’s light comedic side in a show about life, love, and good friends having good times.”
“Because after all, Where There’s Smoke, there’s laughter,” McPherson added.
