Alcatraz from JJ Abrams: to be sf/f

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.

Are you sure it's SF/F? Sounds like it could go either way.

Is he going to cock tease us with a big mystery for five seasons before not delivering on any goods in the final season/episode?

Nah... It will do that for 2 seasons and then be canceled.

I thought he was too busy ruining Star Trek to also produce a tv series?

What he seems to do is make 6-7 episodes of a show, and then ditch it, so his name is attacted to it when he goes off and does something else.

And if you follow Star Trek (1)2 news it seems no one making it really cares about it, they are picking their nose.

Everyone in the show is dead. We've been following ghosts that roam Alcatraz.

I'm calling it.

Wait...did I miss something? When did the guy who made Lost, Alias, and the latest Star Trek movie stop being awesome? We nerds are so fickle.

Are you one of those who misunderstood the ending of Lost and incorrectly thought the entire show was about dead people?

He was never awesome to needs was he? He seems to be awesome to people who can't function their brains correctly.

I understood it but for Alcatraz it could be about the dead that roam Alcatraz

Abrams didn't have much to do with LOST beyond the pilot.
