Fox Launches High Budgeted Sci-fi Series ‘FlashForward’

FOX, the world’s number one U.S. series channel, has launched its latest science-fiction television series FlashForward via an exclusive press screening to select members of the media (including Starmometer) and FOX trade partners at Manila Ocean Park’s White Moon Bar.

FOX International Channels (FIC) territory director Jude Turcuato and other FIC officials welcomed the guests who were all eager to see the director’s cut of Flash Forward’s pilot episode, “No more good days.”

“We are thrilled to finally bring this global blockbuster TV series to our local cable TV channels. I’m sure that viewers will find Flash Forward’s 23 episodes worth watching with its special effects and suspenseful storytelling,” Turcuato said.

The event became even more exciting when the guests 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.

FlashForward’s pilot episode was shown over dinner, and guests 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.

After the dinner and premiere screening, the guests were treated to an equally-exciting lights and fountain show at the Manila Ocean Park.

The event was hosted by Rovilson Fernandez.


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.”

FlashForward airs every Monday night at 10:00 p.m. on FOX Channel, Sky Cable channel 50.
