Due to a political conspiracy, an innocent man is sent to death row and his only hope is his brother, who makes it his mission to deliberately get himself sent to the same prison in order to break the both of them out, from the inside.
Life is laid bare as a group of plane crash survivors find themselves stranded on a remote Pacific island. The trauma of the crash soon becomes overshadowed by the island itself, where unseen creatures stalk the jungle, paranormal happenings abound and astonishing coincidences reveal themselves. In this unique environment emotions swell as the survivors battle their inner and outer demons, and strive to live together - so that they won't die alone. Written by
The series began development in the summer of 2003 when Lloyd Braun, then the Chairman of ABC, during a meeting of the network's executives pitched the show as a cross between the film Cast Away (2000) and the popular reality TV show Survivor (2000). "Lost" was one of dozens of ideas to emerge from the meeting that got circulated to Hollywood agencies and producers to see if any attracted any interest. A few weeks later, veteran producer Aaron Spelling said he wanted to do "Lost" and ABC ordered a pilot script from a Spelling writer. When the script arrived in December, Braun hated it. A rewrite in January was even worse. Braun then contacted J.J. Abrams, whose series Alias (2001) was a hit for the network. Although initially hesitant, Abrams gave it a go in collaboration with Damon Lindelof. Their script was greenlit, but because it had been commissioned so late in the 2004 development cycle it was under very tight deadlines. Ironically, before the pilot aired Lloyd Braun was sacked by ABC's parent company, Disney - for greenlighting such an expensive and risky project. See more »
James "Sawyer" Ford is a career con man with an extensive criminal record, which is covered throughout the series. However, everybody except New Zealanders must get a visa to travel to Australia, and Sawyer never would have been approved. The "character requirement" prevents people with substantial criminal records or known criminal associations from entering Australia. See more »
This is a really good program with very good writers. There are many subplots that keep you interested and waiting for next week for more answers to the many growing mysteries surrounding the island where a group of plane-crash survivors have wrecked.
I also like how the writers go into the history of each main character, making them more interesting for the watcher. This looks to be a hit.
There are a lot of mysterious goings-on at the island and a lot of drama between the characters of the show.
Great to have some TV that doesn't involve CSI, cops, lawyers or doctors!
