NBC gets 'Lost' with 'Flight 29 Down' - Rips-off ABC's hit series

Lost Gets a Genuine Rip-Off


NBC's affiliate and baby channel Discovery Kids will primiere a new show this fall called "Flight 29 down" about - get this - 29 TEENS that survive a plane crash on a South Pacific island.

Sound familiar?

So far, ABC reps are remaining mum about the status of their rival network's show (a law suit is therefore NOT pending as of yet.)

Scary thing is, the cast image, the location of shooting, and the premise of the show is identical to "Lost" over on ABC.

Scarier thing is, this new show is already pending a second season.
