Going Inside

Everyone refers to Alcatraz as a new J.J. Abrams series. Yes, it is being produced by Bad Robot. But make no mistake - this is an Elizabeth Sarnoff show.  I have a tremendous amount of respect for her work as a writer/executive producer on two of my favorite shows of all time, Deadwood and Lost. My expectations are certainly high for Alcatraz; thus, a new site dedicated to it.

Filming for the pilot of Alcatraz is now underway in Vancouver. So far, the cast includes Jorge Garcia (Lost), Sam Neill (The Tudors), Parminder Nagra (ER), Robert Forster (Heroes), Sarah Jones (Sons of Anarchy), Jason Butler Harner (Changeling) and Jeffrey Pierce (The Nine). 

For a quick look at what we know about Alcatraz so far, I recommend this io9 article.

My intent with this site is to keep you up to date with the latest news about Alcatraz and to provide episode analysis once the series debuts. In addition, I will be pursuing interviews with the creative team and cast when those opportunities become available. 

Are you ready to take a look inside with me?
