ABC's 'Lost' Kicking off final season on the beach
Here's a new promo going into the Christmas Holidays:
ABC plans to launch the final season of "Lost" with an advance screening during a special Sunset on the Beach, and stars from the show have been invited.
The event is scheduled for Jan. 30 at Queen's Surf Beach in Waikíkí, and fans from as far away as Ireland and Afghanistan are already planning to come.
The sixth season of "Lost," which has been based in Hawai'i since it began in 2004, will have its national broadcast premiere three days later, on Feb. 2.
The network could not yet confirm which cast members would be there, but previous previews have featured most of the primary stars.
Thousands of screaming fans packed the beach when ABC held advance screenings in 2004, 2005 and 2006. Much to their delight, cast members — including Josh Holloway, Evangeline Lilly, Matthew Fox, Daniel Dae Kim and Jorge Garcia — repeatedly broke away from interviews with national media to shake hands, exchange hugs and sign autographs.
For the final season's premiere, the show's executive producers — Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof — are expected to attend, ABC said. Other guests will be announced later.
Mayor Mufi Hannemann said the city was proud to host the premiere because "Lost" was good for the Islands.
"More than any other show, 'Lost' has proven that Honolulu can be an industry production center because the cosmopolitan nature of our great city gives us the ability to double for dozens of places around the world, and we have the talented crew and burgeoning infrastructure to support this industry," Hannemann said.
I think this new promo is pretty cool.
