ABC IS SET TO LAUNCH THE FIRST OFFICIAL “LOST” PODCAST SERIES ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 8
First Podcast Will Be Available on ABC.com on November 8 Future Podcasts will be Available on both ABC.com and Apple’s iTunes, Beginning on November 15
The ABC Television Network will be launching the first official “Lost” podcast series on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 8. The first podcast will be available on ABC.com.
Beginning on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 15, all future podcasts will be available on both ABC.com and Apple’s iTunes. Each week throughout the November sweeps, various “Lost” cast members, along with informative conversations between creator/executive producer Damon Lindelof and executive producer Carlton Cuse, will tease the week’s upcoming episode, as well as answer fan questions.
On Tuesday, November 8, the first podcast will feature Josh Holloway (Sawyer) and Daniel Dae Kim (Jin) providing compelling insights into filming some rather rough raft scenes. Lindelof and Cuse will be on hand to discuss the first season, music and the upcoming episode “Abandoned” (airing on Wednesday, November 9).
Lindelof and Cuse commented, “Damon and I began dreaming about podcasts back when we were working on ‘Nash Bridges’ together - even though there was no such thing yet. Now that those dreams finally make sense, we couldn’t be more excited. If such excitement were measured on a scale of 1-7, ours would be a 19.” The “Lost” podcasts will be available for download on the official “Lost” website at lost.abc.com (beginning on November 8) and on Apple’s iTunes (beginning on November 15). Users will be able to download the podcasts on both sites at no cost.
Podcasts will remain available on each site for an unspecified time. Fans wishing to post questions to the producers of “Lost” can do so on the “Lost” site at lost.abc.com. A podcast is the distribution of audio files for download. You can then hear the podcast whenever you want from your computer or a portable media player.
On this Wednesday’s episode, entitled “Abandoned,” Sawyer’s wound becomes life-threatening as he, Michael and Jin make their way through the interior of the island with the tail section survivors. Meanwhile, Shannon is once again haunted by visions of Walt, and Charlie becomes jealous of Locke’s interest in Claire. Ian Somerhalder and Malcolm David Kelley guest star as Boone and Walt, respectively.
“Lost,” which airs WEDNESDAYS (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network, stars Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Mr. Eko, Naveen Andrews as Sayid, Emilie de Ravin as Claire, Matthew Fox as Jack, Jorge Garcia as Hurley, Maggie Grace as Shannon, Josh Holloway as Sawyer, Daniel Dae Kim as Jin, Yunjin Kim as Sun, Evangeline Lilly as Kate, Dominic Monaghan as Charlie, Terry O’Quinn as Locke, Harold Perrineau as Michael, Michelle Rodriguez as Ana Lucia and Cynthia Watros as Libby. J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof co-created “Lost” and also serve as executive producers, along with Bryan Burk, Jack Bender and Carlton Cuse. “Lost,” which is filmed entirely on location in Hawaii, is from Touchstone Television.
