With Flash Forward premiering in less than a week ABC have released a few new promo’s and clips to wet our appetites.

I’m a believer that too many advance clips viewed out of context can ruin what the premiere experience should be like, but you can make up you’re own mind if you want to watch these or not.

Sneak Peek #3 is the best clip with a fair bit of action but I should warn you, it gives away a decent chunk of a ‘flash forward’ moment.

Clips after the jump.

ABC’s ‘Flash Forward’ Could Go For Seven Years

ABC’s new sci-fi series Flash Forward follows the story of many different characters from all over the world as they deal with witnessing a 2-minute and 17-second slice of the future.

Though previously billed as having been ‘based on’ Robert J. Sawyer’s sci-fi novel ‘Flashforward’, executive producer Marc Guggenhelm has told Think McFly Think that he prefers to refer to the series as having been ‘inspired by’ Sawyer’s book since the storyline heads in a different direction to the novel.

“If you read the book and find the concept intriguing, you will really enjoy what David [Goyer] and Brannon [Braga] did with it,” Guggenheim adds.

In the book the flash that the characters experience goes forward some 21 years but the series significantly shrinks it to six months.  The benefit according to Guggenhelm is that the future can become the present much faster.

“The real appeal when you are doing a television series is getting to see the payoff of when the future becomes the present. David and Brannon made the decision to have that payoff come in the first season,” he said.

Guggenhelm also believes Flash Forward could go for longer than Lost.

“We figure it can go seven years pretty comfortably,” he said. “At a minimum, we figure we would need three seasons [to tell the story]…I have a feeling people will start talking about Flash Foward once they see it. I think that show will inspire that much interest.”
