Going from "Nowhere" to "Lost"

In this article, Jeffrey Lieber - the guy who shares the "Created By" credit on "Lost", tells the story of how he got ousted from the series. He developed a pitch, to the point of writing a pilot called "Nowhere", which eventually became the bones for "Lost".

"Nowhere" is nowhere close to "Lost" and yet, strikingly similar.

This also gives some interesting insight into how TV shows get made/not made.
