“It’s like Lost meets Titanic” said the Fox exec just moments before he turned into a fine mist, then escaped through the conference room keyhole.

Remember that movie The Beach, that capitalized on Leo DiCaprio‘s post-Titanic buzz only slightly better than The Man in the Iron Mask did? The film that will forever be known as Danny Boyle’s underachievement?

IT’S GONNA BE A SERIES, PROBABLY!

For reasons that will probably never be known, Fox has hired a writer to turn the film’s premise into a weekly series that follows a group of self-imposed castaways as they basically do what the people on Lost did, only with more weed.

As the tone here indicates, I’m skeptical, but all that skepticism will be washed away if they give us All Saints’ “Pure Shores” as the theme song. That was my JAM in summer of 2000.
