“Westworld” is offline for now. But that’s OK, because J.J. Abrams’ new high-profile HBO series has found its showrunner.
Bash Doran has been set to executive produce and run “Demimonde,” as part of a two-year overall deal the “Jerusalem” creator has signed with the premium cable network.

HBO placed a straight-to-series order for “Demimonde” back in February. Abrams is set to pen the script, making this the first TV series the producer has written since 2008’s “Fringe.”
In classic Abrams’ fashion, HBO’s official logline for the series is purposely vague: an epic and intimate sci-fi fantasy drama.
Abrams will executive produce with Ben Stephenson — head of television for Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions — in association with Warner Bros. Television.
Bash is the creator of the new UK Channel 4 series “Jerusaleum,” which is currently shooting in the UK. She has written/produced on “The Looming Tower” for Hulu, “Masters of Sex” for Showtime, “Boardwalk Empire” for HBO, and “Smash” for NBC.
Bash Doran is represented by by UTA and Schreck Rose.
