Long-time collaborators J.J. Abrams and Jennifer Garner are reuniting for a new Apple series.

The new drama series, titled “My Glory Was I Had Such Friends,” is going to be based on the 2017 Amy Silverstein memoir of the same name. The memoir revolves around Silverstein’s experience as she awaited a second heart transplant and the group of women who supported her through the difficult process. It will be created through Abrams’ production company Bad Robot.

Abrams and Garner are reuniting for the first time since the spy series Alias, which starred Garner as the main character Sydney Bristow. Abrams subsequently created Lost and then moved on to movies with Star Trek, Super 8, Star Trek: Into Darkness and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Meanwhile, Garner most recently starred in the HBO series Camping but has also starred in Dallas Buyers Club and Juno since her days as a globetrotting spy.

Apple did not reveal a date for when the drama series is expected to debut.
