The new season begins next week, but Fox is getting ahead of the development curve, ordering pilots for next TV season.

The network has ordered ‘Alcatraz,’ which was written by Liz Sarnoff (‘Lost’), and Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt, both of ‘Kyle XY,’ and is produced by Bad Robot, J.J. Abrams’ company.

The show is described as ‘a dramatic series that explores the lore and mysteries of Alcatraz, the notorious San Francisco island prison.’


Well, at least we know what the island is.
