FlashForward writers

For the Writers Guild of America West, Dylan Callaghan talks to David S. Goyer and Marc Guggenheim about their new TV series FlashForward (co-created with Brannon Braga).
Marc Guggenheim: We have a lot of story to tell. One of the very first things that David and I decided on was that, the more cynical members of the audience would think, “Oh, they’re going to show me the future in the premier, and then they’ll tread water for six months, and I can just tune in for the season finale and find out what came to pass and what didn’t.” So one of the very first things we decided was that we had to defy those expectations right out of the gate and basically make episodes two through 21 destination viewing. What that means is...

David S. Goyer: You burn through story faster.

Marc Guggenheim: Exactly. We burn through so much story.

In the UK, FlashForward is on Five and can also be watched online.
