Premiere on the Rock

15 Jan

So as many of you know by now, last week we had our Alcatraz premiere event on Alcatraz. It was pretty sweet.  We flew on a charter jet. Then we were shuttled to the ferry that took us to the island where we had a party and screening of the pilot on cell block D. As it was almost a year ago when we shot the pilot there, it felt like an anniversary or homecoming. Then we got right back on the plane, because we had work in the morning.

As you can imagine the flight back was a bit more mellow than the flight out. Note Jonny Coyne in the background.

Oh and at some point over the course of the evening I apparently lost my hands.

    Thanks for letting us board the plane with you 😉 I just hope here in Germany we won’t have to wait too long for the show to air.

    I am so excited for tomorrow! I have the DVR set to record the entire series. Woot! Congratulations to you and the entire cast and crew. I see someone on here has a friend who saw the preview. I would have loved that. Was it shown up there or here in LA? Had I known, I’d have made the trip down, or tried to. LoL

    Welcome back, Mr. Garcia! We are so lucky to have another island graced with your presence. Good luck, we can’t wait to see you again. We know the show will be a great success.

    Crazy about your hands. Perhaps they’ll mysteriously reappear in 50 years.

  24. Lisa January 16, 2012 at 11:51 am #

    Oh bravo!!! “The piece that really makes the core cast click, though, is Jorge Garcia from “Lost,” who plays Diego Soto, an Alcatraz expert. Mr. Garcia enlivens every scene he’s in and provides droll humor as well.”

    Also looking forward to the first official podcast!

    Great job Jorge! The pilot episodes felt perfect tonight. They hit all the right chords and the cast is phenomenal! Looking forward to seeing the rest of the show. Dude, you are such a blessed guy! Thanks for all your hard work!
