“Lost” star Jorge Garcia will reunite with that show’s co-creator/executive producer J.J Abrams on the new series “Alcatraz”.
The Fox pilot, says Deadine, “centers on a group of missing Alcatraz prisoners and guards who reappear in the present day. It chronicles the efforts of a team of FBI agents to track them down and unravel the mystery behind their disappearance thirty years prior. Garcia will play the hippy geek Dr. Diego Soto, the world’s foremost expert on Alcatraz.”
Danny Canon (“Judge Dredd”, “Goal!”) will direct the pilot, which shoots in San Francisco (naturally) and Vancouver in January.
2011 will see quite a few of the former “Lost” castaways back on our screens. For starters, Michael Emerson and Terry O’Quinn star as former special ops agents in the project ”Odd Jobs”, which has landed at NBC with a put pilot commitment.
