Alcatraz has been on the air for a few weeks now, so it is about bloody time I posted this video. It was shot before Christmas while I was on the west coast visiting the set of the J.J. Abrams drama. The series is produced in Vancouver at the same North Shore studios where The X Files once squatted.
The large jail house interior is three stories high with cells on either side. The main stars of the series-- Parminder Nagra, Sarah Jones and Jorge Garcia as well as the always "charming" Sam Neill--took questions from a few reporters against a cave wall-like background in the command centre on the set. Alcatraz, which has drawn around the million viewer mark over three weeks so far in Canada, airs Mondays at 9/8c on Fox and City.
