Viewers of the latest Lost episode in the US may have been confused by the series of adverts asking ‘What did you see’. It turns out these are all teaser clips for ABC’s next-big programme, FlashForward.
The show takes place in 2009 and revolves around the fallout from the running of a Large Hadron Collider (wait a minute, didn’t this actually happen last year!). As the collider is run, every human alive experiences a flashforward to events some time in the future. These last about two minutes. The story sees the characters joining together challenging the ideas of free-will and destiny. Sounds very similar to a certain show I also blog about!
The show is actually based on a book of the same name. Among the cast is Lost actress Sonya Walger (Penny Widmore).
FlashForward is due to air over the summer and if popular will be picked up for a full season later in the year. I personally hope it does as it sounds intriguing and may be a good replacement for the ultimate sci-fi extravaganza that is Lost!
