First clip of J. J. Abrams Alcatraz
This is the 2nd J.J. Abrams show to get picked up this season after Person of Interest. Created by J. J. Abrams (Lost, Star Trek, Fringe etc…) & Elizabeth Sarnoff (writer/producer Lost, Deadwood), Alcatraz starts off with a fingerprint at a homicide found by Detective Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones – Sons of Anarchy, Big Love) which appears to be from a former inmate of the prison, who should be long dead. As she digs deeper, Madsen enlists the help of Alcatraz expert Dr. Diego Soto (Jorge Garcia – Hurley in Lost), and also encounters the hindrance of government agent Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill – Jurassic Park). It turns out not only is the inmate alive, he’s merrily killing again on the streets of San Francisco, and it seems he’s not the only ex-Alcatraz resident on the loose. Madsen and Soto reluctantly team up with Hauser and his sidekick Lucy Banerjee (Parminder Nagra – ER, Bend It Like Beckham) to track down the various miscreants. Alcatraz is due to air mid-season 2012 on Fox.
