Jorge Garcia, who played Hurley on the hit TV show LOST has been cast in a lead role in J.J. Abrams new TV series Alcatraz.
The show has been described as being about the "mysteries, secrets and the most infamous prison of all time: Alcatraz." Deadline reports that the "show will center on a group of missing Alcatraz prisoners and guards who reappear in the present day. It chronicles the efforts of a team of FBI agents to track them down and unravel the mystery behind their disappearance thirty years prior. Garcia will play the hippy geek Dr. Diego Soto, the world's foremost expert on Alcatraz."
This description of the new show isn't what I thought it would be, but it sounds pretty cool. Hopefully it ends up being better than most of these new supernatural TV shows being developed.
