Free will or fate? FlashForward pivots on a conflict philosophers have grappled with for centuries, but, hey, in a fun way! ABC’s first-year, sci-fi drama opens with a global “flash forward”—a simultaneous loss of human consciousness in which billions of people inexplicably black out for 137 seconds, experiencing visions of their lives six months into the future. The New York Times’s Ginia Bellafante dug the “bracing suspense” so much that she wrote, “I am challenged to recall another pilot that has lured me so quickly into addiction.” Mark Benford (Joseph Fiennes) and his team of G-men are tasked with unraveling the mystery. David S. Goyer and Brannon Braga created the show for television, based on Robert J. Sawyer’s novel.

An ABC Studios production. HBO Entertainment and Phantom Four Films.

  • It's Mark and Olivia's anniversary tomorrow. Are they going to celebrate it together?

  • Did anyone have any pre-conceived notions about someone else before the show that was blown out of the water once you started working with them?

    SiriTyler, March 08, 2010 at 6:14 pm

  • I know the show is pretty serious, but do you have any really funny stories on set you can share with us? :)

  • What is the most challenging part of working on FlashForward? 

    AliceTallis, March 08, 2010 at 4:54 pm

  • To all of the cast: What do you find most attracting about the show? Is it the human side of the drama? The science? The action? Or is it the fact that the show has all of it?

  • For Sonya & Dominic: FlashForward is often compared to Lost. How do you feel about this, being as you both have worked on both shows? Do you think this comparison is valid?

  • When will the guests for the FlashForward panel be announced? I think this is the only panel still in question.

    EllaBrice, March 02, 2010 at 6:42 pm

  • To the writers/producers/creative team: I am really intrigued with your use of Magic in the show. Where did you find your Magic consultant? What scientific resources did you research to use the Magic as a communication tool with autistic children?

  • For Mr. Fiennes: Will you pleeease do theatre in Los Angeles? Pretty please? I know it's not as glamorous as NYC or London, but I promise it will be appreciated!!

    AliceTallis, February 26, 2010 at 6:25 pm

  • For Mr. Fiennes & Mr. Cho: Both of you are well known for film roles that are much different from the those that you play on FlashForward. What attracted you to the project and your respective characters? Why did you choose a television role as opposed to full length movie roles?
