J.J. Abrams' Alcatraz project lands at Fox
Top-secret show is from a team of 'Lost' veterans
J.J. Abrams' top-secret Alcatraz project has found a home at Fox.
The network has given a pilot commitment to Abrams' latest mysterious TV endeavor, whose official logline is as cryptic as one might expect: "A show about mysteries, secrets and the most infamous prison of all time: Alcatraz."
Abrams is reteaming with veterans from his other island-based show, "Lost" -- Elizabeth Sarnoff is the lead writer and joins Abrams as an executive producer, and Bryan Burk is an executive producer. Co-executive producers and writers include Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt.
If greenlighted, the project will join Abrams' "Fringe" on the network. Abrams is also shopping a crime thriller with Jonathan Nolan.
Abrams' Bad Robot produces the show in association with Warner Bros.
