Fox's J.J. Abrams-Produced Drama Series 'Alcatraz' Undergoes Showrunner Change

There is a change at the helm of Fox’s midseason drama Alcatraz, from Warner Bros. TV and J.J. Abrams’ studio-based Bad Robot. Co-creator/executive producer/showrunner Elizabeth Sarnoff is leaving the time-travel series, which will now be co-run by Jennifer Johnson and Daniel Pyne. Chase creator/executive producer and Lost alumna Johnson joined Alcatraz after the pilot as a consulting producer. Two months ago, she was quietly elevated to executive producer and co-showrunner alongside Sarnoff. Sarnoff, who wrote the version of the project that was picked up to pilot and then to series by Fox from an earlier incarnation by Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt, is now stepping down over creative differences, with feature writer Pyne (Fracture) coming in as an executive producer and co-showrunner alongside Johnson.

Can't wait for this one to get started. The story line on this one is just so interesting and so outside the box that I just want to know where they're going to go with this and how far they're going to take all these characters. I like the actors they picked to play and everyone involved so far is pretty good so I think it's going to be one of those awesome shows that I just can't miss every week....that means that the only thing I have to worry about is the show getting cancelled too soon.
