And Jorge Garcia has been cast.
The project, described to be "about secrets and the most infamous prison of all time," 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.
Eh, I was kinda hoping it would be set during the heydey of Alcatraz and not be sf/f at all. Still, of course I'll check it out.
