ABC had a lot of success with Lost, and one of the reasons for that show’s success was Jorge Garcia’s character Hugo “Hurley” Reyes. Â Hurley was essential in the series’ final episodes, and it looks like a new ABC show is hoping to bring some of his fans over. Â This is a common (and smart) move by shows: bring in a guest star who will draw viewers who haven’t seen the series before and hope they like it enough to stay once the character is gone.
