BURBANK, CA (August 8, 2012) - Alcatraz closed decades ago, but trouble still seems to resurface around the penitentiary for San Francisco Detective Madsen, Alcatraz expert "Doc" Soto and the mysterious agent Emerson Hauser. In Alcatraz: The Complete Series

Alcatraz: The Complete Series
chronicles the mystery of the "63s" - the forgotten prisoners - who mysteriously disappeared from Alcatraz Island Federal Penitentiary in 1963. Now, unexplainably, these criminals are returning to the streets of San Francisco to repeat their grisly crimes...not a day older than when they initially disappeared almost fifty years ago. Enlisted by the close-to-the-vest Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill) and his equally elusive associate Lucy Bannerjee (Parminder Nagra), the driven detective Madsen (Sarah Jones) and fresh-faced Diego "Doc" Soto (Jorge Garcia) delve into the mystery of the 63s return, uncovering a much larger, more sinister threat. The series also features Robert Forster, Jonny Coyne and Jason Butler Harner as the prison's authority with a shared histoy.
