New multimedia: 'Lost,' 'Law & Order,' 'CSI'

92448__adawale_l_2Lost fanatics have yet another source of insider information to fuel their wildest plotline theories, as ABC.com is launching today (editor’s note: today at some point — not yet though) a weekly podcast series featuring interviews with selected cast members, and conversations between creator/executive producer Damon Lindelof and executive producer Carlton Cuse.

This further extends the network’s efforts to use the Web to grow its shows’ audiences; in October, it began offering morning-after downloads of Lost and Desperate Housewives at iTunes for $1.99.

(Meanwhile, Zap2it’s got an interview with Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, left, who plays Mr. Eko, and who also pops up as drug dealer Majestic in Get Rich or Die Tryin’. He hints at his future role on the twisty series.)

Of course, ABC’s not the only one exploring new technologies. Both NBC and CBS have unveiled plans to make some of their shows available on demand for 99 cents. NBC will offer episodes of Law & Order: SVU, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, The Office, and Surface, plus USA’s Monk, and Sci Fi’s Battlestar Galactica, for 99 cents via DirecTV Plus DVRs. CBS, meanwhile, will offer CSI, NCIS, Survivor, and The Amazing Race to Comcast customers in selected cities, also for 99 cents.

This is a pretty nifty idea, but I think the networks could be a little more innovative. Why not a tiered pricing structure that charges more money for popular programs, but offers sale pricing for struggling or new series. Heck, NBC could offer My Name Is Earl free with every purchase of Joey.

    Ok, Tanner. Now that you’ve made it here, you should know that I also like Hannah, but I am not going to pursue her. Instead I want you two to go out because I believe you have true chemistry. Can we talk at school tomorrow in private and continue this chat? Email me at the email address I gave you earlier, that is if you still want to talk to me.
