Fifty years ago, Alcatraz prison was closed, all inmates officially shifted to a more modern facility. In fact jailer Emerson Hauser was among those who witnessed dozens of hardened criminals disappearing mysteriously at once. He joined the FBI and heads a secret division to hunt them down now. The first target is Jack Sylvane, dubiously convicted and mistreated, who now exacts bloody revenge on long-retired deputy warden E.B. Tiller. The affair allows recruiting Alcatraz-obsessed genius Dr. Diego Soto and San Fancisco PD detective Rebecca Madsen, who seems somehow destined. Written by
Did You Know?
During the opening scene, as the two guards are walking up to Alcatraz, you can see the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Bridge lit up in the background. Lights weren't added to the suspension cables until 1986. See more
You ever do any research on an inmate named Jack Sylvane?
Sylvane? That was one unlucky cat. The guy was a World War II vet. Got sent to the Rock for robbing a grocery store.
How's that a federal crime?
Well, that's the unlucky part. Store sold stamps.
