New promo for ABC’s Flash Forward

Is Flash Forward the successor to Lost, or a show with plenty going for it in its own right? There's a new promo to help you work that out...

It’s already being touted in some quarters as being the spiritual successor to Lost, but ABC’s Flash Forward may have a bit more in its tank than that. The show, which premieres in the UK and US next month, is about an odd phenomenon that sees everyone on the planet blacking out for just over two minutes, and then getting a strange premonition of something coming in the future. Based on the book by Robert J Sawyer, the show, even though its first season is still weeks away, has been picking up a lot of interest.

Its importance to ABC can’t be understated, of course. Its Lost juggernaut finally comes to an end in 2010, and the network will be hoping that Flash Forward is its natural successor. It’s thus building up for the show’s maiden episode with some new promotional material, including this new clip that popped up at Spoiler TV.

Take a look and let us know what you think, and we’ll be following Flash Forward at Den Of Geek once it kicks off, with its US premiere set for 24th September.
