Lindelof and Cuse to Get "Lost" For One More Season

Looks like we might get to the bottom of the numbers mystery after all. The Hollywood Reporter is, er, reporting today that Lost executive producers and co-showrunners Damon Lindelof (left) and Carlton Cuse have both signed seven-figure deals to stay on board the hit ABC castaway drama through the 2006-2007 season.

Lindelof co-wrote the pilot for Lost with J.J. Abrams, for which he was nominated for an Emmy. He has so far written or co-written 15 episodes of Lost. Previously, he was a writer on the NBC drama Crossing Jordan, Nash Bridges, and the sadly failed Kevin Williamson ABC drama Wasteland. Lindelof is also the writer of the recent Marvel comic book mini-series Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk.

Cuse joined Lost in October 2004 and has written more than a half-dozen episodes of the show, including last week's "Lockdown," which he co-wrote with Lindelof. Before Lost, Cuse was the creator of several shows, including The Adventures of Brisco County Jr., Nash Bridges, and Martial Law.

Lindelof and Cuse, along with the show's producing team, received the best drama Emmy in 2005 and took home the best drama Golden Globe earlier this year.

No word if Locke and the other stranded passengers of Oceanic Flight 815 were happy to hear that Lindelof and Cuse will be tormenting them for another year.

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous season

Pilot Inspektor: CBS' "Smith"

I may just have to change my original "What I'll Be Watching This Fall" post, as I sat down and finally watched CBS' new crime drama Smith this weekend. (What? It's taken me a long time to make my way through the stack of pilot DVDs.) While it's on following Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars on Tuesday nights (10 pm ET/PT, to be exact), I'm going to be sure to leave enough room on my TiVo to make sure that I catch this compelling, amoral drama. While one can't help but be impressed by what might just be the most marquee-friendly cast in primetime--Ray Liotta, Virginia Madsen, Jonny Lee Miller, Amy Smart, Simon Baker, and Franky G all star and Shohreh Aghdashloo has a recurring role--the pilot's premise alone earned major points in my book: it's a crime drama from the point of view of the criminals, who engage in high-stakes heists. But don't be alarmed; it's nothing like NBC's short-lived Heist . Instead, think of it as The Italian
