At&T-owned WarnerMedia is near closing a roughly $500 million deal with Bad Robot, the production studio from J. J. Abrams and his wife Katie McGrath, according to media reports.

Bad Robot Productions had reportedly attracted attention from streaming services such as Amazon, Apple and Netflix.

Bad Robot apparently wanted to work with a "larger" company that had both film and TV distribution under its belt, beating streaming providers that lack that kind of breadth.

Bad Robot is responsible for the television series Alias, Lost, Fringe, Person of Interest,and others alongside feature-length films Star Trek, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Star Wars Episodes VII and IX, among other blockbusters.
