Show Summary

Alcatraz is from LOST and Fringe mastermind J.J. Abrams. The mystery-thriller stars Sarah Jones as detective Rebecca Madsen who is investigating a case connected to a prison inmate who died 30 years ago. Her investigation and connection to the prison leads her to work with an unlikely ally, comic book lover Dr. Diego 'Doc' Soto (played by Lost's Jorge Garcia), while a government agent named Emerson Hause (Sam Neil) tries to intervene and stop her investigation. As Madsen and Soto team up, the mystery of Alcatraz is revealed: inmates that were thought to be dead for years are roaming the streets of San Francisco, continuing their crimes from fifty years ago. As they look into the history of Alcatraz and government cover-ups, they discover that this one prisoner is just a small part of a bigger threat connected with the prison in Alcatraz.
