David S. Goyer (“Blade: The Series”) and Brannon Braga (“Star Trek: Enterprise”) – who earlier collaborated on CBS’ short-lived alien-invasion drama “Threshold” – will see their “Flash Forward” pilot go to series, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The sci-fi novel by Robert J. Sawyer. on which the series is based is about what happens when physicists, conducting a super-high-energy experiment, accidentally cause everybody on the planet to experience two minutes and 17 seconds of his or her own future 21 years hence. A lot of people were driving cars when their consciousnesses left their bodies for more than two minutes, so the experience is memorable for many reasons. Goyer, who wrote and directed “Blade: Trinity” for the big screen, directed the pilot.
Also at ABC, “Eastwick” is “hot” and “V” is “looking good” while "Captain Cook's Extraordinary Atlas" is back in contention, according to the story, which also reports that Fox’s “Human Target,” based on the DC Comics character, is “a shoo-in” to go to series.
At NBC, “Parenthood,” another movie-spawned hourlong from “Friday Night Lights” showrunner Jason Katims, is already interviewing potential staffers, and the Steve Martin sitcom “Community” is “hot,” according to the story.
Unmentioned in the Reporter’s story is the NBC pilot “Day One,” about apartment dwellers dealing with a mysterious worldwide disaster.
