Courtney B. Vance (Law & Order Criminal Intent) will be appearing on a new ABC show called Flash Forward which will premiere on September 24 at 8:00 PM ET. Courtney will play Stanford "Stan" Wedeck, who is the Assistant Director of the Los Angeles Field Office of the FBI. The Flash Forward web site says his character’s “ability to process and delegate efficiently enabled him to single-handedly turn his team into a well-oiled machine. The same rules apply at home. Though with his only child having just started college, Wedeck is learning to embrace the quiet nights he gets to spend with his wife. He maintains a dry sense of humor during the darkest of times.”
The Flash Forward web site also goes on to describe the show as follows:
A mysterious global event causes everyone to black out simultaneously for two minutes and seventeen seconds, and each person sees a glimpse of their lives six months from now. When they wake up, everyone is left wondering if what they saw will actually happen.
Los Angeles FBI Agent Mark Benford (Joseph Fiennes) is desperate to uncover why this happened and who or what is behind it. And he's not the only one. Before long, everyone starts asking, "What did you see?" As Mark and his team struggle to figure out what caused this bizarre event, they begin to piece together the future by creating a huge database of people's flash forwards from all over the world - The Mosaic Collective. No one knows what these flash forwards mean or exactly what the future really holds. But it is clear that across the globe people who've never met will somehow be intimately connected and will have an impact on each other's lives in the next six months. Some will fear what's coming, others excited; but not a single person will be unaffected.
Sounds interesting. By the way, the executive producer of the show is Marc Guggenheim, who has produced many excellent Law & Order episodes in the past.
