G4 TAKES VIEWERS BACK TO THE ISLAND TO RELIVE THE PHENOMENON FROM THE VERY BEGINNING WITH THE RETURN OF THE HIGHLY ACCLAIMED TELEVISION SERIES "LOST"
G4 to Air Entire Series in Four Episode Installments Beginning Monday July 16 at 8pm ET/PT
LOS ANGELES, Calif. - July 2, 2012 - Modern television was changed forever with the series premiere of "LOST" on September 22, 2004. From the mind of celebrated television producer J.J. Abrams, "LOST" follows a group of plane crash survivors as they struggle to persevere on a supernatural, mysterious island in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean. An instant hit and cult favorite through its original run on ABC, "LOST" was the recipient of numerous awards, including an Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series in 2005. Whether viewers missed any of the action the first time, or just want to re-experience the pop culture phenomenon, G4 will air the entire series in four episode installments every Monday, beginning Monday, July 16 at 8pm ET/PT.
"There is no denying the impact that 'LOST' had on its worldwide audience," said Adam Stotsky, General Manager of G4. "For six seasons, the lives of Kate, Sawyer, Jack, Locke and Sayid were analyzed for hours over the watercooler and discussed at length on blogs. Now, over two years after the series ended its initial run, avid fans and newcomers alike will be able to revisit the survivors of Oceanic flight 815 from the very beginning and catch their favorite moments from this epic adventure."
The survivors featured on "LOST" include a diverse group of people from different walks of life - a doctor, an escaped fugitive, a con man, an Iraqi interrogator, a married Korean couple and a man formerly confined to a wheelchair who is inexplicably healed. As the castaways attempt to get home, flashbacks (and forwards) illuminate their troubled lives before and after the crash, as the island they find themselves stranded on begins to slowly reveal its mysterious nature. The island holds many secrets, including a mysterious smoke monster, polar bears, hatches with electricity and hot & cold running water, a group of island residents known as "The Others," and a mysterious man named Jacob. Faith, reason, destiny and free will all clash as the island offers opportunities for both corruption and redemption ... but as to its true purpose? That's the greatest mystery of all.
Return to the island as G4 airs "LOST" every Monday, beginning Monday, July 16 at 8pm ET.
