Season 1

The Lost Room is an American science fiction television mini-series created by Christopher Leone, Laura Harkcom and Paul Workman which revolves around the titular room and some of the everyday items from that room which possess unusual powers.

The series aired in the USA on the Sci Fi channel from 11-13 December, 2006. It is approximately five hours long.

The series originally aired in South Africa on DStv's actionX (which later became M-Net Action) channel in six parts, from 24 August to 28 September, 2007, on Fridays at 19h00. It later aired on TopTV's Showtime channel, in three parts. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

The Lost Room premiered on Showtime on Friday 7 October 2011, at 21h00. New episodes broadcast weekly, in three episodes.

Synopsis

In the 1960s, there still were hundreds of motels with thousands of rooms along Route 66 as it twisted its way from Chicago to L.A. and back.

None of them stood out from the rest until one day when some unknown event at the Sunshine Motel transformed ordinary things into items of wonder.

Room 10 of the Sunshine Motel and many of its mundane contents — a pair of scissors, a comb and so on — gained unique and inexplicable properties on that day, transforming them from ordinary objects into indestructible Objects.

The Scissors can turn and rotate any item in three dimensions. The Comb stops time for 10 seconds when you run it through your hair. The Eyeglasses inhibit all combustion in a 20-foot radius.

The Room itself is an unchanging haven and a portal to any destination. But it can also take that which you value more than your own life.

To possess an Object is to possess its power.

Using each Object exacts a physical, emotional or psychological cost from the owner. Just holding one makes you a target for murder.

For decades, maybe since the first moment that the Motel Room was ripped from this reality, cabals have formed to collect all the Objects.

As always, some just want unlimited power, and they believe getting all of the Objects will give them that. Others want to prevent anyone from ever again using the Objects.

And though their motives vary, the cabals' tactics are similar. It's said that while you have one of the Objects, you have no friends, only people waiting for an opening.

Police Det. Joe Miller was introduced to the Motel Room when a fatally shot young man gave him one of the most powerful and coveted Objects of them all: the Key to the Motel Room.

His life is immediately turned upside down when his young daughter becomes lost in the room.

In his relentless quest to rescue his little girl, Joe becomes the target of shadowy figures who will stop at nothing to take from him his only hope of saving her — the Key.

Seasons

Note: there are three episodes in the series, although it aired as six episodes on actionX.
