J.J. Abrams Locks Up LOST’s Jorge Garcia in ALCATRAZ

by     Posted 3 years, 276 days ago


The Fox drama Alcatraz is quickly developing into a dragnet for Lost fans.  Key Lost writer Elizabeth Sarnoff is the showrunner.  Lost co-creator J.J. Abrams is executive producer.  And now, according to Deadline, Lost fan favorite Jorge Garcia will star.

The drama centers on a team FBI agents that investigates the mystery of a group of missing Alcatraz prisoners who disappeared thirty years ago.  Garcia will play Dr. Diego Soto, the world’s foremost expert on Alcatraz, described as a “hippie geek.”  Awesome.

Bryan Burk (Fringe) joins Abrams and Sarnoff as producer; Danny Cannon (CSI) will direct the pilot, which shoots in January in San Franciso and Vancouver.  Glad to hear they’ll shoot some of the show on location in Frisco.  The aerials, at the very least.

    Fuck yes. Maybe this can replace both LOST and Fringe

      No need to replace those shows mate. I’d rather see something altogether different, lest we go down that dark path into the darkside of remake and sequels and prequels. :D

    I heard the producers were paying Jorge Garcia bags and bags of bacon oil, 50 blocks of dairy butter, A human size bag (Jorge size actually) of MnM’ candies and a year supply of hair spray to maintain those piggy chops. Great deal! Great deal!

  • Hi

    Just so you now, people in San Francisco not only never say “Frisco,” but they also despise the term.

    Not a recent development; has been so for decades.

    Otherwise, thanks for a great article.
