Flash Forward TV Show Promo Images
Joseph Fiennes and John Cho (of “Harold and Kumar” fame) are FBI agents trying to figure out the mysteries of what happened when they blacked out for two minutes and 17 seconds and saw their future. That’s the killer premise of ABC’s new sci-fi show Flash Forward, from genre producers Braga and Goyer. ABC has scheduled the show for their Fall 2009 line-up on Thursdays. Here is a batch of promo photos from the show.
What if you were shown a glimpse of your future, but didn’t like what you saw? How hard would you fight and what would you sacrifice to keep it from coming true? When an unexplained, cataclysmic event knocks out the entire population of the world at the exact same moment, for two minutes and 17 seconds, everyone will see a glimpse of their own future. Then they will wake up to chaos.
From his flash forward, LA FBI Agent Mark Benford is able to piece together the ‘when’ April 29, 2010, but he’s desperate to figure out the ‘why’ and stop what’s coming because it’s a future he doesn’t want to see. In the future, Mark’s beloved wife has left him for the father of one of her patients. He’s started drinking again, his loyal partner’s been murdered and masked operatives are hunting him down.
Before long, everyone starts asking themselves and each other, “What did you see?” As Mark and his team struggle to figure out what caused this bizarre event and wonder will it happen again, the only thing they have to go on is a huge mosaic of people’s flash forwards.
Adapting award-winning science fiction author Robert J. Sawyer’s revolutionary novel, executive producers David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight) and Brannon Braga (24, Star Trek: Enterprise) invite us to flash forward into a thrilling vision of a world held captive by events that have not yet taken place. No one knows for certain what the future holds, but everyone will have their theories.
Starring Joseph Fiennes, John Cho, Jack Davenport, Brian O’Byrne, Christine Woods, Courtney B. Vance, Peyton List, Sonya Walger, Zachary Knighton, and based on the novel by Robert J. Sawyer. David S. Goyer and Brannon Braga produces.
Flash Forward premieres on Thursdays this Fall on ABC.
