ALCATRAZ: THE COMPLETE SERIES is out on DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday, October 16. Take a sneak peek at a clip from the featurette "Alcatraz: Island of Intrigue" below!
ALCATRAZ premiered on FOX in January 2012. From executive producer J.J. Abrams (FRINGE, "Lost," "Star Trek," "Super 8" and the upcoming "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol") and writer Elizabeth Sarnoff ("Lost," "Deadwood") the drama is a chilling new series revolving around America's most infamous prison, the one-time home to the nation's worst murderers, rapists, kidnappers, thieves and arsonists.
When San Francisco Police Department DET. REBECCA MADSEN (Sarah Jones) is assigned to a grisly homicide case, a fingerprint leads her to a shocking suspect: JACK SYLVANE (Jeffrey Pierce), an Alcatraz inmate who died over 30 years ago. Given her family history - both her grandfather and surrogate uncle, RAY ARCHER (Robert Forster), were guards at the prison - Madsen's interest is immediately piqued, and once the enigmatic, knows-everything-but-tells-nothing government agent EMERSON HAUSER (Sam Neill) tries to impede her investigation, she's doggedly committed.
Madsen turns to Alcatraz expert and comic book enthusiast, DR. DIEGO "DOC" SOTO (Jorge Garcia), to help her piece together the inexplicable sequence of events. The twosome discovers that Sylvane is not only alive, but he's loose on the streets of San Francisco, exacting decades-old revenge and leaving bodies in his wake. And strangely, he hasn't aged a day since 1963 when Alcatraz was ruled by the iron-fisted WARDEN Edwin James (Jonny Coyne) and the sadistic ASSOCIATE WARDEN E.B. TILLER (Jason Butler Harner).
