Persons Unknown

Check out a promo for a new NBC series titled PERSONS UNKNOWN which will air sometime in 2010. The series was created by writer and Oscar winner Christopher McQuarrie (Usual Suspects)

Based on the promo, it’s like Lost but instead of an island, it’s a town. Not a super original plot if you ask me.

Show Summary: From Academy Award-winning writer Christopher McQuarrie (‘The Usual Suspects’), who executive produces with Heather McQuarrie, ‘Persons Unknown’ is a surreal mind-game of a series centering on a group of strangers who awaken in a deserted town with no memory of how they arrived, only to realize that there is no escape. Watched by omnipresent security cameras, their every attempt at leaving the town’s borders is thwarted by mysterious forces. The only source of information is fed randomly through remotely controlled televisions, and as mistrust begins to breed, every alliance will be tested, especially when new guests begin to arrive. ‘Persons Unknown’ is from Fox Television Studios.
