What About Us?



Excerpt from CNN.com article:

Damon Lindelof is eager for some answers. An executive producer of ABC's mystery serial "Lost," he should learn this week what his show's future holds as it closes out its fourth season.

"Lost" has been back on the air just two weeks. But the strike meant a planned 16-episode shooting schedule was halted after just eight episodes were shot. Fans braced themselves for no more this season.

"But we very much want to come back and do as many episodes as possible," said Lindelof, who then listed a few issues that first need to be settled.

"How many episodes can best serve our story? And what are the production realities?" He noted that the shooting facility in Hawaii, 2,500 miles from his Los Angeles office, had been shuttered since Thanksgiving. The crew has dispersed, the huge cast has scattered.

The first new post-strike episode of "Lost" could possibly be ready for broadcast the week after episode eight appears, he said. There likely would be three or four more after that.

Could there be even more?

"I'd be surprised if the network wanted to air episodes deep into the summer," he said. But if all the pieces fell into place, "Lost" fans would be blessed: "I don't see why we couldn't deliver all eight remaining episodes."

Chris JC said...

It may potentially be about time for a "w00t"!

Because Sawyer called Locke Colonel Kurtz, I'm watching Apocalypse Now today. Also, I had a patient the other day named Charles Pace.

FutureAlly said...

w00t! w00t!

Chris JC said...

Woah - I think we should wait and see how this pans out so we can see whether the powerful Double-w00t should be unleashed from its volcanic lair.

FutureAlly said...

i'll refrain, next time. i'm sorry, i just couldn't hold back the excitement this time (twss).

My use of Volcanic Lair seems to have been directly inspired by me just reading about Xenu.

I'm so happy (and relieved) that the strike is apparently over. I really hope Cuselof was accurate about when Lost season 4 part deux could be back.

How awesome would that be if we only had a ONE WEEK HIATUS??!!!

aimee in little rock said...

I just hope they don't get sloppy with the writing or lazy with the directing/producing just to save time.

PalmerEldritch said...
