1st Official ALCATRAZ Footage & Series Debut News!

This trailer was just officially released by FOX, who also announced that ALCATRAZ will debut mid-season (likely be January 2012). 

You can now "like" Alcatraz on Facebook and follow @AlcatrazOnFOX on Twitter. 

Based on this initial footage, what do you think? The look and feel certainly match up to my expectations, and I am VERY excited to see more. 

If I had to guess, they will screen either the entire pilot or at least 15 minutes of it at San Diego Comic-Con in July. I will be at the panel and in the press room, so stay tuned for reports from behind the scenes!

ALCATRAZ is officially a GO!

According to Cynthia Littleton on, "Fox is starting to spread the good news to producers, with sources saying the net has given series orders to drama Warner Bros. TV drama "Alcatraz," from J.J. Abrams and "Lost" scribe Elizabeth Sarnoff."

Congratulations to the entire cast, crew and creative team!

As more news about the show and schedule emerges during the Upfronts next week and beyond, I will be sure to update you here.
