Stars of Alcatraz include Sarah Jones, Jeffrey Pierce, Robert Forster, Sam Neill, Jorge Garcia, Jonny Coyne, Jason Butler Harner and Parminder Nagra.
Fox even published a synopsis about upcoming series Alcatraz. This synopsis gives a lot of information about it. Here is the synopsis:
When San Francisco Police Department Detective Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones, Sons of Anarchy) is assigned to a grisly homicide case, a fingerprint leads her to a shocking suspect: Jack Sylvane (guest star Jeffrey Pierce, The Nine), a former Alcatraz inmate who died decades ago. Given her family history – both her grandfather and surrogate uncle, Ray Archer (Robert Forster, Jackie Brown) were guards at the prison – Madsen’s interest is immediately piqued, and once the enigmatic, knows everything but tells nothing. Yet, when government agent Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill, Jurassic Park) tries to impede her investigation, she’s doggedly committed.
Madsen turns to Alcatraz expert and comic book enthusiast, Dr. Diego “Doc” Soto (Jorge Garcia, Lost), to piece together the inexplicable sequence of events. The twosome discovers that Sylvane is not only alive, but he’s loose on the streets of San Francisco, leaving bodies in his wake.
Strangely, he hasn’t aged a day since he was in Alcatraz, when the prison was ruled by the iron-fisted Warden Edwin James (Jonny Coyne, Undercovers) and the merciless Associate Warden E.B. Tiller (Jason Butler Harner, The Changeling). Madsen and Soto reluctantly team with Agent Hauser and his technician, Lucy Banerjee (Parminder Nagra, ER), to stop Sylvane’s vengeful killing spree.
By delving into Alcatraz history, government cover-ups and Rebecca’s own heritage, the team will ultimately discover that Sylvane is only a small part of a much larger, more sinister present-day threat. For while he may be the first, it quickly becomes clear that Sylvane won’t be the last prisoner to reappear from Alcatraz.
Through the course of the investigation, Madsen and Soto will learn that Agent Hauser has known about the prison’s secret history and has been awaiting the prisoners’ return. Soto will witness his life’s work – the history of Alcatraz – come alive. Madsen will be forced to keep her supportive San Francisco cop fiance, Jimmy Dickens (Santiago Cabrera, Heroes), at arm’s length from the highly classified assignment as she sees everything she thought she knew about her family’s past shattered, all while fighting to keep the country safe from history’s most dangerous criminals.
When people watched first the trailer and read the synopsis many people thought that Alcatraz will be the new Lost. Will it be successful like Lost? Authorities think differently from each other. Some of them think that Alcatraz is not good like Lost and others think totally different. There are many ideas about Alcatraz.
We’ll just have to wait and see.
Alcatraz premieres on Fox Tv in 2012.
