Alcatraz (FOX) "Pilot" & "Ernest Cobb" *Spoilers!*

Alcatraz premieres Monday night on FOX at 8PM EDT. (2 Hours)


Alcatraz is an American television series starring Sam Neill, Sarah Jones and Jorge Garcia airing on Fox. Bad Robot Productions produced the pilot episode, which is based on a screenplay by Elizabeth Sarnoff, Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt.[1] The series was officially picked up by Fox on May 10, 2011.[2] On December 2, 2011, Fox announced that the series would air as a midseason replacement starting January 16, 2012. The series will air on Monday evenings, premiering with a 2-hour episode at 8:00 ET, before assuming its regular timeslot at 9:00 ET starting January 23, 2012.[3] The series is filmed principally in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Sam Neill as Emerson Hauser, an enigmatic, knows-everything-but-tells-nothing government agent.
Sarah Jones as Rebecca Madsen, a San Francisco Police Department homicide detective.
Jorge Garcia as Dr. Diego “Doc” Soto, an Alcatraz expert and comic book enthusiast.
Robert Forster as Ray Archer, Det. Madsen's surrogate uncle.
Jeffrey Pierce as Jack Sylvane, a former Alcatraz inmate who supposedly died decades ago.
Parminder Nagra as Lucy Banerjee, Agent Hauser's technician.
Jonny Coyne as Edwin James, the iron-fisted warden of Alcatraz.
Jason Butler Harner as Elijah Bailey "E.B." Tiller, the merciless associate warden.

I wasn't too interested when this was announced but I will be checking it out Monday.

This is of course produced by J. J. Abrams.
