The Flash Forward Press Launch

April 6, 2010

The Flash Forward Cast

What can happen in 2 minutes and 17 seconds? This is one of the many puzzles that Flash Forward will present to its Philippine audience as FOX, the world’s number one U.S. series channel, has launched its latest science-fiction television series via an exclusive press screening to select members of the media and FOX trade partners at Manila Ocean Park’s White Moon Bar.

A big budget sci-fi series in the tradition of Lost, FlashForward stars British actor Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare in Love and Enemy at the Gates) who plays Los Angeles FBI agent Mark Benford investigating a mysterious event that caused nearly everyone on the planet to simultaneously lose consciousness for 2 minutes and 17 seconds. During this brief “blackout,” people saw glimpses of their lives on April 29, 2010 or six months into the future—a global “flashforward.”

FOX International Channels (FIC) territory director Jude Turcuato and other FIC officials welcomed us who were all eager to see the director’s cut of Flash Forward’s pilot episode, “No more good days.” The event became even more exciting when we were offered a chance to have their own “flashforward” experience or a glimpse of their possible future through a tarot card reading by members of Spirit Questors Inc. I was able to get a glimpse of my future, but as they say, we still make our own destiny.

Flash Forward’s pilot episode was shown after the dinner, and we were amazed at the sci-fi television series’ impressive visual effects, the same production element that attracted 12.5 million viewers when it was launched in the U.S.

We were also treated to an equally-exciting lights and fountain show at the Manila Ocean Park.

FlashForward also stars Sonya Walger (Lost) as trauma surgeon Dr. Olive Benford, John Cho (Harold and Kumar) as FBI special agent Demetri Noh, Christine Woods (House) as FBI agent Janis Hawk, Courtney Vance (Law & Order) as FBI assistant director Stanford Wedeck, Zachary Knighton (Ed) as surgical intern Bryce Varley, and Bryan O’Byrne (The International) as technician Aaron Stark.

FlashForward’s next thrilling episodes include White to Play and 137 Sekunden. The new sci-fi television series airs every Monday at 10 p.m., only on FOX Channel (Sky Cable Channel 50).
