While flash forwards are becoming the norm on “Lost,” ABC has also landed a show named “Flash Forward,” reports Variety. The network has given a pilot order to the spec script by filmmaker David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight) and “Star Trek” veteran Brannon Braga.
Based on Robert J. Sawyer’s sci-fi novel, “Flash Forward” is considered very compatible with “Lost.” It chronicles the chaos that ensues after everyone in the world blacks out for 2 minutes, 17 seconds and has a mysterious vision of the future that changes lives forever.
Goyer will direct the pilot. He also will executive produce with Braga and Jessika Borsiczky Goyer (NBC’s “Revelations”) along with Vince Gerardis and Ralph M. Vicinanza (Jumper), who own the rights to the book.
Goyer and Braga met on the CBS sci-fi series “Threshold,” which both executive produced.
