ABC.com will roll out a fake documentary about the Dharma Initiative, the mysterious research program that settled the island decades before the characters on the show crash-landed there.

Mysteries of the Universe: The Dharma Initiative is a five-part short-form series that debuts on ABC.com on August 4 in the build up to the sixth and final season of Lost later this year.

The online ‘documentary’ is set in the early 1980s and attempts to “uncover the truth about the shadowy organisation” through interviews, research and eyewitness accounts.

Really, “Lost” fans?  You guys aren’t actually going to watch this, are you?  I mean, I’m cool with you watching the show — it’s a good show — but does fandom really run that deep?  An online fake documentary. Before you watch it, I want you to do one thing: think back to when you were a kid and try to remember what you wanted to be when you grew up.  If “Comic Book Guy” from the Simpsons is your answer, then go ahead and watch it.
