Early release for actors of Alcatraz
JJ Abrams’ prison drama Alcatraz has been axed after one season on air. The show, starring Sam Neill and Lost’s Jorge Garcia (pictured), was based on America’s legendary Alcatraz prison and focused on the mysterious reappearance of prisoners and guards who vanished from the island jail in the 1960s. It aired in the US on Channel 9 and regional affiliate NBN. Also axed was Bones spin-off The Finder, but the Kiefer Sutherland drama Touch will have a second season.
