ABC to ‘Flash Forward’ (BRIAN STELTER, 5/11/09, NY Times)

The network said on Friday it had ordered 13 episodes of the series, expected to make its debut in the fall. Appropriately enough for a show titled “Flash Forward,” ABC began foreshadowing its existence last month during an episode of “Lost,” in five-second commercials that flashed an image and asked, “What did you see?” (Viewers thought they saw a school, a wedding, a funeral and other snapshots from people’s lives.) According to Variety, the series will explore the effects of a worldwide 2-minute-17-second period of unconsciousness in which people are able to see themselves six months in the future. produce his Calculating God.
