James Newport was one of the production designers for Lost who worked on the first eight episodes of Season 4, from "The Beginning of the End" to "Meet Kevin Johnson". He also worked on the first four mobisodes. Newport's most notable contribution to the show was the entire freighter, both interior and exterior.
Before working on Lost, Newport worked on such shows as Fantasy Island (also filmed in Hawaii), and China Beach. Rod Holcomb, director of "Hearts and Minds", had recommended Newport to Jack Bender, due to the fact that both Holcomb and Newport had worked on China Beach and many other projects together. Though he had not seen much of the show, he was interested in the job, and was soon hired in June 2007. (New Season Secrets!)
- Newport is also the author of two books, Chasing Jimi and The Vampire of Slam.
