ABC picks up ‘Flash Forward’ sci-fi pilot
The science fiction pilot
Flash Forward has been picked up by ABC and given a 13-episode order, the network says.
The show, whose pilot episode was produced and co-written by David Goyer and Brannon Braga, got the nod from the network Friday only hours after executives screened it to a strong reception, The Hollywood Reporter said.
Marc Guggenheim, co-creator of
Eli Stone, will reportedly serve as executive producer of
Flash Forward and will run the series with David Goyer, while Jessika Goyer, Vince Gerardis and Ralph Vicinanza will also serve as executive producers.
