Flashforward on 7

The pics available to promote this series are boring (see cast photo on the left) but the series has everyone talking in the US.
It's called FLASHFORWARD and it begins on Channel 7 at the end of September on a day and time slot still to be decided.
Are you kidding me?
If Channel 7 aren't careful they're going to miss all the hype and buzz which surrounds this show at the moment and end up with a ratings bomb instead of a ratings hit.
Briefly, the plot revolves around a mysterious global event which causes everyone to black out simultaneously for two minutes and 17 seconds. During the blackout each person sees a glimpse of their lives six months from now.
When they wake up, everyone is left wondering if what they saw will actually happen.
It's an interesting premise, albeit a confusing one. I just hope that it doesn't start big like LOST and then die in the 'backside' like that series did due to continually convoluted plots which had no logical outcomes.
This series centres around Los Angeles FBI Agent Mark Benford (Joseph Fiennes) who is desperate to uncover why everyone blacked out for this exact amount of time and who or what is behind it?
One of the many promo I read, says it all, so I'll just cut and paste it here for you:-
Some will fear what's coming, others excited; but not a single person will be unaffected.
Adapting award-winning author Robert J. Sawyer's revolutionary novel, executive producers David S. Goyer ("The Dark Knight") and Brannon Braga (24, Star Trek: Enterprise) invite you to embark on a journey to answer the question, "if you knew what your future held, what would you do?"
