Evangeline Lilly: I was intentionally injured on the set of Lost because of a "misogynistic" stunt coordinator
During a stuntwoman panel on Wednesday, Lilly accused Lost's stunt coordinator, whom she wouldn't name, of intentionally putting her in harm's way after she insisted on doing her own stunt that involved rolling off a thick tree branch. “I felt it was him saying, ‘I’m going to put you in your place for standing up to me,’” she said. “It was either cow to his power or hurt myself. I was in my 20s then. Now, I would probably back down.”

Westworld seems like it doubled down on its overall "Lost-iness" in Season 2
Sunday's episode had an opening sequence that bore similarities to Lost's memorable Season 2 opener. But co-creator Lisa Joy, who directed the episode, says she's never seen Lost. “This is the way that happy accidents make history rhyme sometimes," she said of the similarities. Yet it's not just that opening sequence. Westworld has always seemed like Lost, especially this season, says Lindsey Romain. "Beyond sharing that visual cue, the second season of Westworld has doubled down on its overall Lost-iness," she says. "The first season, you might recall, was already loaded with similar storytelling mechanics: a beautiful remote location, godlike men pulling strings, a man in black, time not being what it seems. Season two feels similarly derivative, or at the very least spiritually connected." ALSO: Lisa Joy talks about directing her first episode.

NBC picks up Lost-like drama Manifest, starring Josh Dallas
The Once Upon a Time alum will star on the Robert Zemeckis-produced show described as "Lost in reverse." According to the logline, “when Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent but routine flight, the crew and passengers were relieved. Yet in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years and their friends, families and colleagues, after mourning their loss, had given up hope and moved on."

The Crossing is a way for ABC to sort of reboot Lost
ABC touted its new sci-fi series as being “from the network that brought you Lost" -- and it's "pretty Lost-y," says Jen Chaney. Like Lost, The Crossing has an intriguing pilot. But the pilot was the only episode made available in advance. "It’s ... difficult to determine whether this show will be something truly ambitious and must-watch in the same way that Lost was, or yet another forgettable broadcast-network-ized attempt at serialized suspense," says Chaney. "The first episode suggests it could go either way."
- The Crossing may have been a better fit for USA or Syfy, where it would be guaranteed to last a season
- The Crossing is perfectly engineered for this moment since it's a reminder of past shows
- It's a supernatural story that's mercifully free of superheroes
- The Crossing is a reminder of the current immigration debate

The Good Place creator Michael Schur sought advice from Lost’s Damon Lindelof
Schur saw every Lost episode live and would cry with his wife watching Lindelof’s HBO series The Leftovers. So after meeting last year, a “bromance” was formed. Schur says of leaning on Lindelof for Good Place advice: “The thing that Damon did for me, which I was very grateful for, the greatest thing anyone any writer can do for another writer, which is to say, ‘Here are, like, 12 pitfalls you’re about to fall into,” which is exactly what I needed. I needed a person who is conversant in the language of science fiction or genre writing, which I am not, to say to me, ‘Here are some things that are gonna happen that are dangerous. Here’s what’s gonna happen, here’s how to avoid it.’ So that was a huge part of how I operated going forward.”

“I’ve been silent for a few weeks now. Completely silent,” the former Lost star and father of accuser Aurora Perrineau said in a statement posted on Twitter. “I mean what do you say when you are watching your wife not eat or sleep? What do you say when you realized you couldn’t protect your child? What do you say when your heart is just…broken? Silence.” He added: “I realized I’m not watching some victim here, I’m in the presence of a warrior. A real life crime fighter who is unafraid to look boldly at some coward who hoped to abuse her and say, no.”

TV industry book Desperate Networks is being developed as a TV series
Bill Carter, the former New York Times TV writer whose book on the Letterman-Leno late-night wars was made into the HBO movie Late Shift, is about to see another of his TV books adapted -- this time, as a potential TV series. Carter released Desperate Networks in 2006, and is set to write the TV adaptation. Desperate Networks focused primarily on ABC’s trio of successful shows in the 2004-05 season (Desperate Housewives, Lost and Grey’s Anatomy), along with the early-2000s rise of reality TV, American Idol and Donald Trump's The Apprentice.
