Watch is bringing hit US drama Alcatraz, the latest series from JJ Abrams, to the UK.
Launching on March 13th, the series stars Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill and Parminder Nagra.
When San Francisco Police Department detective Rebecca Madsen (Jones) is assigned to a grisly homicide case, a fingerprint leads her to a shocking suspect: an Alcatraz inmate – one who died over 30 years ago.
Given her family history – both her grandfather and surrogate uncle, Ray Archer, were guards at the prison – Madsen’s interest is immediately piqued, and once the enigmatic, knows-everything-but-tells-nothing government agent Emerson Hauser tries to impede her investigation, she’s doggedly committed.
Madsen turns to Alcatraz expert and comic book enthusiast Dr. Diego “Doc” Soto (Garcia) to piece together the inexplicable sequence of events.
With the assistance of Senior Agent Emerson Hauser (Neill) and scientist Lucy Banergee (Nagra) the two discover leads to a series of events that will change San Francisco and the history of the inmates of Alcatraz forever.
And so the mystery of ‘the rock’ begins to unfold…
