Comic-Con 2011: Alcatraz Looks Like Lost in San Francisco

"Lost" fans have been wondering when J.J. Abrams will get back to television. Okay, when he'll get back to television with something other than "Undercovers" (did that even get a full season on the air?) And they've finally gotten it with "Alcatraz."

In 1963, 302 prisoners and prison personnel vanished from Alcatraz Island without a trace. Nearly fifty years later, Jack Sylvane comes back, without having aged a day, and immediately heads for the mainland to settle a few scores. A police officer and an Alcatraz historian are on his trail, but they also have to fight a mysterious federal agent who knows a lot more about the disappearances than he's letting on.

The first thing that'll pop out to fans is "Alcatraz" having a decided mystery/sci-fi aspect to it. The preview shown at Comic-Con doesn't heavily emphasize these mysteries, but they're definitely in the foreground, just like that federal agent is obviously up to something. The cast also stands out: Jorge Garcia finally gets a role that has him playing something other than a fat slacker, and Sam Neill, owner of the professional "Hey, It's That Guy" title (you probably know him best from "Jurassic Park") plays the evil federal agent.

"Alcatraz" will be running on Fox in 2012.
