Word has it that ABC is very close to giving the greenlight to a pilot called “Flash Forward.” The show is based on a book by Robert J. Sawyer, where a high-energy experiment goes wrong, causing everyone to pass out for two minutes and see what their lives look like 20 years in the future (fuck black holes — let’s see the LHC do that shit!). When they wake up, there’s mass chaos from all the shit that happens when the whole world passes out for two minutes — car and plane crashes, and the like. And then folks have to deal with the ramifications of their future visions, both as to themselves and society as a whole.

The pilot script was co-written by David S. Goyer (Batman Begins) and Brannon Braga (a “Star Trek” guy), both of whom will exec produce. The show as originally pitched to HBO which passed, and ABC then won a bidding war with Fox. Certainly sounds like an interesting concept, and ABC is surely envisioning this as the show that it may finally be able to successfully pair up with “Lost,” but I suppose, pun intended, time will tell.
