Yeah, sounds like a winner to me, not.
The premise of the show is to explore how people react to an unexplainable phenomenon. It's a great story. The book is really lovely and I highly recommend it.

I think it lends itself really well to a television show. And obviously he did learn something from LOST. He's telling you now, up front, not to focus on an imaginary mystery. He's managing expectations. And it's a good PR move.

The show isn't about the disappearance, it's about the reaction, the aftermath. Should be fascinating, if you're into that kind of thing.
