Petaling Jaya, 7th July 2010 - If you like big-screen-level thrills and complicated plot structures, 8TV has the perfect treat for you! On October 6, 2009, the whole world blacked out for 2 minutes and 17 seconds, at the start of what is promised to be 8tv's new hit show, FLASHFORWARD!

There is absolutely no question that the science fiction phenomenon has taken off with a tremendous following that has swept up fans from all around the world. FLASHFORWARD too has gained its share of fans, jumping on the wagon and making its way to 8TV this June. Based loosely on the science fiction novel by Canadian author Robert J. Sawyer, FLASHFORWARD is set to fictionalize your minds!

Just seconds into the pilot episode, lead character, Mark Benford emerges from unconsciousness to find total chaos. Surrounded by wrecked cars, screaming people, he snapped into heroic action, running around barking orders and the puzzled citizens. The cold-open confusion was caused by a collective blackout! This truly mysterious occurrence causes nearly everyone on the planet to loose consciousness simultaneously for 137 seconds, during which time people get a glimpse into their future - a global "FLASHFORWARD".

Watch what happens when a team of Los Angeles FBI agents, led by Stanford Wedeck begin the process of determining what happened, why it happened and whether or not this mysterious phenomenon will happen ever again.

During his FLASHFORWARD, Benford saw the results of six months of investigation that he had done on the flash forward event, thus he and his team use those clues to recreate the investigation.

The series' ensemble cast includes Joseph Fiennes, John Cho, Jack Davenport, Zachary Knighton, Peyton List, Dominic Monaghan, Brian F. O'Byrne, Courtney B. Vance, Sonya Walger, and Christine Woods.

"I saw the pilot and the first thought I had was wow" says Ms Lam Swee Kim, General Manager of 8TV. Kim adds, "Evocative, smartly structured and well acted describes FLASHFORWARD best! The strange ride you are about to take will definitely be worth every minute!"

It is entertainment with suspense! Enough twists and turns that it becomes refreshingly unpredictable, so don't forget to flash on to the 22 episodes of FLASHFORWARD, as it premiers on Monday, 28th of June 2010 at 9.30pm exclusively on 8TV. 8TV is also available on Astro's Channel 708.
