One of ABCís most promising new drama series premiering during the Fall 2009 season is Flash Forward. Set to air Thursdays at 8:00pm ET.
Below is the series description as posted by ABC:
Flash Forward - When a mysterious event causes the entire world to black out, humanity is given a glimpse into its near future, and every man, woman and child is forced to come to grips with whether their destinies can be avoided or fulfilled. Adapting award-winning author Robert J. Sawyer's revolutionary novel, executive producers David S. Goyer (visionary co-writer of "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight") and Brannon Braga ("24," "Star Trek: Enterprise") invite you to embark on a journey to answer the question, "if you knew what your future held, what would you do?"
PRODUCTION COMPANIES: ABC Television
EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS: David S. Goyer, Brannon Braga, Marc Guggenheim, Jessika Goyer, Vince Gerardis, Ralph Vicianza
DIRECTOR: David S. Goyer
CAST: Joseph Fiennes as Mark Benford, John Cho as Demetri Noh, Jack Davenport as Lloyd Simcoe, Sonya Walger as Olivia Benford, Courtney B. Vance as Stan Wedeck, Brian O'Byrne as Aaron Stark, Christine Woods as Janis Hawk, Zachary Knighton as Bryce Varley and Peyton List as Nicole.
Flash Forward is the most promising of ABCís slate of new shows. Itís at least the one Iím most interested in. Iíve come to realize that such hope for a new series from me is usually a death knell, so I apologize ahead of time to the creators. ABC is pushing this show, giving it a prime spot just before Greyís Anatomy on the fall schedule. Usurping Ugly Bettyís slot likely means that the network hopes FF will straddle the gender divide in a way similar to Lost.
