As the new television season approaches, the hype gradually builds for the new shows that the networks hope will become the 'next big thing'. This year there are few shows generating as much buzz as Flashforward.
Coming to the ABC network just as mega hit tv show Lost is coming to an end, Flashforward tells the story of a mysterious global event that causes everyone to simultaneously experience, for two minutes and seventeen seconds, his or her life six months in the future. When it is over, many are dead in accidents involving vehicles, aircraft, and any other device needing human control. Everyone who survived is left wondering if what they saw will actually happen.
With Lost coming to an end, it is hoped that this show will take its place. Big names you may recognize in the cast include Joseph Fiennes, of Shakespeare in Love fame, John Cho, from the recent Star Trek movie, and Dominic Monaghan, who played Charlie in Lost.
The show starts this September, and hopes are high, keep an eye on this one.
