NBC's new series The Event is the feral love child of 24 and Lost

Even though we highly doubt there will be another Lost-type TV show for some time, NBC's certainly angling its new series, The Event that way — with a 24 twist. Will these new clips make you watch the series?

The Event, which will be on Mondays at 9 PM, has a pretty bare-bones synopsis:

When an average guy stumbles upon a secret so powerful it could change the course of humanity, and a cover-up so big that the President is on a need-to-know basis, answers can only lead to bigger questions.

And from what we've seen in the past, it still feels like Lost with spies — and Laura Innes is Ben. Our biggest hope for this series is that it spends time developing the characters, and less time throat-punching guys in ski masks and blowing stuff up. But from what we've seen thus far, we're not sure which way this series will go. Check out these three new clips.
