Fox and JJ Abrams team up for Alcatraz

THE man who mystified the world with Lost is set to return to our TV screens with the highly-anticipated ‘Alcatraz’.

Teaming up with Fox – who only recently axed a whole host of shows including Lie To Me and The Chicago Code – JJ Abrams’ new show is described as a blend of procedural drama with mythological content.

Starring Sam Neill, Jorge Garcia and Sarah Jones (with Abrams executive producing), a trailer has revealed something of a supernatural, time-travelling mystery mixed in with a cop show.

By all accounts, from what the trailer shows us, it looks great.

The big question will be: Is it the new Lost? And if so…will it divide opinion as much?

Alcatraz is set to be aired next year.
