MADISON (WKOW) -- Fans packed the Hillel on UW campus to listen to Eddie Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, executive producers and writers of ABC's "Lost."

They talked about what it takes to get to Hollywood.

"I tell people to keep writing, each script we write, we learn something new and we make ourselves better," Horowitz said.

And spoke about their roots at the UW.

"This is where we met this is where we became writing partners this is where we said hey, lets try to go to LA and write," Kitsis said.

Of course, they talked about the hit show Lost, and its huge fan base.

With online forums and blogs dedicated to the show.

"We really have the most amazing fans- and its always really humbling to see how energetic and exciting and engaged they get," Kitsis said.

With only a few episodes left, rabid fans demand answers.

"Before its what is the smoke monster, what's this and now it's like, 'you better answer everything!'" Kitsis said.

As much as fans are hungry for more, both agree the show can't go on.

"We've always thought that the best show is the one we can end in 6 seasons so we can complete our story," Kitsis said.

"On a personal level, I think for us, we will never experience something like this again- its just unique," said Horowitz.


MADISON (WKOW) -- The co-writers and co-executive producers of the ABC hit show "Lost" are in Madison.

Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis will be speaking at the UW Hillel Foundation's Barbara Hochberg Center for Student Life on Langdon Street. It starts at 7:30pm.

Horowitz and Kitsis, both UW Alumni, will talk about how the University influenced their writing style and skills, the steps they've taken to get to where they are now, and how the entertainment industry has changed since they started.

They are also expected to touch on their transition from television to film. The two also worked on the upcoming movie "Tron Legacy."

Of course 27 news will ask them about "Lost." The conspiracies, how they come up with their ideas and how hard is it for them to not keep this show going.

Reporter Brian Rodriguez has the answers tonight on 27 news at 10.
