Abrams Shopping ‘Alcatraz’ Show Around H’Wood http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/j-j-abrams-shopping-alcatraz-show-around-hwood/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/j-j-abrams-shopping-alcatraz-show-around-hwood/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 I normally don't report on people shopping projects around to networks, even if those people are J.J. Abrams, but damn is it a slow news day. So hey, Abrams and former "Lost" writer Elizabeth Sarnoff are waving Sarnoff's drama pilot "Alcatraz" under the nose of hungry execs. Not much is known about the script except that it takes place on the San Francisco Bay island that once housed the worst of the worst offenders. A few years ago, Ed Harris took over Alcatraz, and Nic Cage had to bring him down with Sean Connery, but the show most likely won't recognize those events. Poisonous green balls or not, someone will buy this script quicker than you can say, "Abrams equals profit." (Deadline)
