Alcatraz (Official Thread)
Awhile ago Fox ordered a pilot for the new J.J. Abrams/Bad Robot (including Elizabeth Sarnoff) mystery/drama Alcatraz . Looks like it could be an interesting pairing with Fringe assuming that Fox decides to keep that series and pick this one up as well.

The show has already got Jorge Garcia (LOST) and Sarah Jones (Sons of Anarchy) on board.


The show 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.

I was excited when the news first came out, then even more excited when they released that brief synopsis and announced that Jorge was involved. He will play Dr. Diego Soto, a "hippy geek" who is "the world's foremost expert on Alcatraz.”

Sounds good, loving Fringe at the moment too.

I believe Jorge is playing one of the island's doctors and Zap2It has this listed for Sarah Jones character.


Jones plays smart (and slightly obsessive) cop Rebecca Madsen, whose world is shaken up when a group of prisoners and guards who went missing from Alcatraz appear in the present day. A team of FBI agents has to track down the group and investigate their disappearance 30 years ago.

I feel like this show could be really great. I'm definitely excited to hear some more details and casting news, etc. I'm totally on board if it's picked up.

this reminds me about how badly i'm praying to land an internship at Bad Robot next semester.

No you didn't. It's in the Entertainment forum. You just wanted to prove to everyone that you knew some obscure band.
