Fox’s new series ALCATRAZ, Mondays at 9 PM, is the newest television offering from prolific producer J.J. Abrams. In the show, we learn that the maximum security prison on Alcatraz Island was closed fifty years ago, not for the reasons given to the public, but because all of the inmates disappeared overnight. When they begin showing up in present-day San Francisco, it’s up to a team played by Sam Neill, Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia (who previously played Hugo “Hurley” Reyes for Abrams on LOST) and Parminder Nagra to track down the out-of-time miscreants and figure out what’s happened.

With movies and TV fascinated with superheroes, it’s about time someone looked at the other side of being superhuman – namely the human side of things. That’s what the new Syfy series ALPHAS (debuting in July) hopes to accomplish. Created by X-MEN and THE AVENGERS scribe Zak Penn and Michael Karnow, the series follows five ordinary people who end up forming an extraordinary team helping out the Department of Defense. “I think superheroes have a lot of trouble on TV in general,” admits Penn while speaking today at NBC’s Summer Press Day 2011 in Pasadena, CA. “This show, from its […]Read On »
