With Lost coming to a close at the end of its next season, the folks at ABC are looking for their next big primetime hit. And they seem pretty confident that they might have something with their upcoming series FlashForward, from creators Brannon Braga and David S. Goyer (writer of The Dark Knight).

The show follows the story of a group of people investigating a mysterious global event that causes everyone to black out simultaneously for two minutes and seventeen seconds. During the blackout, every person on Earth sees a glimpse of their lives six months from now. When they wake up, everyone is left wondering if what they saw will really happen.

The premise of the show is very cool. The cast also looks reasonably strong, with Joseph Fiennes, John Cho, Dominic Monaghan and Gabrielle Union signing on for the first season cast. It’s enough to make we want to watch the pilot and the first few episodes, which is more than I can say about most shows in the fall lineup. The clip below — a 2-minute sneak peek released today by ABC — is a lot of exposition, but it shows you enough of what’s going on to possibly get you interested. Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think in the comment section below.

FlashForward premieres Thursday, September 24th at 8.7c on ABC.
