ABC has given an early series pickup to the sci-fi drama Flash Forward. The green light isn’t much of a surprise given that the network has already begun marketing it via a series of viral spots that ran during episodes of Lost. Flash Forward is ABC’s second early series order, following up on the recently picked up comedy Modern Family.
Based on the novel Flash Forward by Robert Sawyer, the pilot was written by David Goyer and Brannon Braga. It stars Joseph Fiennes, Courtney B. Vance, Jack Davenport, Sonya Walger, John Cho, Brian O’Byrne, Zachary Knighton, Peyton List and Christine Woods.
