What Is Lost About?

Damon Lin­de­lof, co-cre­ator and exec­u­tive pro­duc­er on what Lost is all about: “This show is about peo­ple who are metaphor­i­cal­ly lost in their lives, who get on an air­plane and crash on an island and become phys­i­cal­ly lost on the plan­et Earth, and once they are able to metaphor­i­cal­ly find them­selves in their lives again, they will be able to phys­i­cal­ly find them­selves in the world again. When you look at the entire show, that’s what it will look like. That’s what it’s always been about.”
