J.J. Abramsí latest top-secret project is a TV series about the island prison Alcatraz. Fox has ordered a pilot for the unnamed series which Abrams is developing with Lost veteran Elizabeth Sarnoff. The only description thus far is "A show about mysteries, secrets and the most infamous prison of all time: Alcatraz."

JJ Abrams could show a black screen for an hour & I'd love it. Any news on when this might air?

It's going to be a mid-season show so early next year.

So no objective reviews then

I've just been reading about it.

http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/ustv/tubetalk/a319779/alcatraz-what-the-lost-guys-did-next.html

Reading down those plot points - isn't this pretty much Fringe with a different setting?

I think I'll give this a look when it hits the TV. I love Jorge Garcia, and it also has Parmidner Nagra in it! She doesn't get nearly enough work, IMO.

I agree with that, not just because she is from my home town, always did wonder what she was doing post E.R.

She's done a couple of small films (including one with Ray Winstone) but not much. Her latest role is in the Horrid Henry film. I think she's a great actress.

It looks even more like Fringe when you watch the trailer, at least in terms of the way the cast is constructed. Gonna guess that the first batch of episodes are procedurals and largely disposable, then there'll be some huge twist and everyone'll be like 'Oh shit that was amazing; you shouldn't have stopped watching!'...at which point I'll start watching.

Looks great, shame it's not until mid-season though. I have a feeling this is going to fill a Lost shaped hole in my heart.

Such a thing is impossible but hopefully this will be the next best thing

Didn't Watch HD and Dave HD launch last month? I think Alibi HD comes at a later date (I remember thinking I can watch Castle in HD!)

Looks pretty damned good to me but then anything with Sam Neill in it gets my vote.

One concern I have is that it ends up like The 4400. Which was shockingly bad.

Personally, I'm looking forward to seeing Parminder Nagra on TV regularly again, it's been a while since she's been in anything decent.
