Nowhere

'''''Nowhere''''' was the title of the series that was written by Jeffrey Lieber that eventually turned into ''Lost''. The show as described as a realistic drama series. Lieber credits ''wikipediaLord of the Flies'' and ''wikipediaCast Away'' as his influences for the series.  ABC did not like the concept and Lieber was dropped. ABC then handed the project over to J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof who made what we now know as ''Lost''.

In this depiction, Kate was written as an older woman traveling with her husband. This idea was still employed, but with the characters of Rose and Bernard.

==Quotes from the writer==
Quotes said by Jeffrey Lieber

{{Quote=In my draft of Lost, I was working off a Lord of the Flies model, wherein a small group of people, cut off from the real world, are forced to reinvent society. What version of law and order who they create? What kind of morality would win out? Would the people who rose to power be benevolent, or is power itself corrupting? At the center of the society I imagined two half brothers, connected by their father, but raised very differently. This is their introduction.}}

{{quote=The biggest challenge with the show was removing, for the most part, the idea that these people would be saved any time soon. One doesn't want to have to spend every episode dwelling on "rescuers" or plans of escape. This scene that follows was my attempt to get the viewer to buy into the survivors' permanent residency.}} ==Similarities and Differences== Similarities and differences between the two shows can only be made based on the 2 excerpts (see below) released of the original ''Nowhere'' pilot episode. There may be numerous other possibly more concrete similarities, as indicated in SAG's ruling of Lieber's involvement in the creation of the show, however to date none of these can be documented due to an absence of the complete script. ===Similarities=== As stated in the http//www.chicagomag.com/Chicago-Magazine/August-2007/Cast-Away/index.php?cp=1&si=0's article on ''Nowhere'' {{Quote="It was easy to point out the parallels," he Lieber says. "I didn't feel as if I'd been robbed, but comparing the scripts I was able to go, ‘A equals A, B equals B,'" and so on. He compiled a ten-page digest of similarities and sent the list to the guild for a ruling. Then he waited.}} *Scenes are shown of people on board a plane before it crashes. {{crossref}} *The stewardess announces the Pilot has turned on the seatbelt sign because of heavy turbulence.{{crossref}} *A plane crashes and rolls before stopping on the beach. {{crossref}} *Some of the passengers survive with only minor superficial wounds. {{crossref}} *Deceased passengers are found in a lake in the jungle a few days after the crash. {{crossref}} *The group gathers all the salvageable items into a stash. {{Crossref's stash}} *The group lights a signal fire to try and get them rescued.{{crossref}} ===Differences=== *The Flight in ''Nowhere'' was traveling from San Francisco to Sydney.
