Jennifer Garner and J.J. Abrams are working together after their beloved spy thriller, Alias, ended in 2006.

ET has learned that Apple has given a straight-to-series order to My Glory Was I Had Such Friends, a one-hour limited drama which Garner will star in. She will also executive produce the series alongside Abrams.

My Glory Was I Had Such Friends is based on the 2017 memoir by Amy Silverstein, which revolves around the power of friendship and the resilience of the human spirit as it follows a group of women who supported Silverstein as she waited for a second life-saving heart transplant.

Garner and Abrams have remained close since working on Alias together. Last October, Garner spoke to ET about a possible Alias reboot. 

"They'll have to get to J.J. [Abrams] for that," she said. 

Garner isn't the only A-lister heading to Apple TV. Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon are set to co-star in a series about TV morning shows, which Aniston recently spoke to ET about.
