Fox orders J.J.'s "Alcatraz"
Another island mystery drama for J.J.? It sure looks like it. Fox Television has ordered a pilot from Bad Robot Productions called "Alcatraz." It written by Liz Sarnoff (a Lost writer) as well as Steven Lilen and Bryan Wynbrandt (who wrote fro Kyle XY) and is described as a "dramatic series that explores the lore and mysteries of Alcatraz, the notorious San Francisco island prison." Since this is an order for a pilot, there is no guarantee this will make it to air. Fox executives must review the pilot before ordering a series, usually in the spring.
