Flash Forward, written by filmmaker David S. Goyer and Star Trek veteran Brannon Braga, may soon join Lost on ABC.
As reported by the Hollywood Reporter and Reuters, Flash Forward, a science fiction show based on Robert J. Sawyer's novel of the same name, is close to being acquired by ABC after a bidding war between ABC and FOX networks.
The premise of Flash Forward is the chaos that occurs all over the world after an experiment goes somehow awry. Everyone in the entire world blacks out for two minutes and seventeen seconds, after which they have a mysterious vision of what will happen twenty years into the future.
Braga will be an executive producer on Flash Forward while continuing to work full-time on 24. The pilot for Flash Forward will be directed by Goyer. Flash Forward is expected to air in 2009.
