He might not be the first person on most Star Trek fans’ Christmas card list, but apparently David Goyer sees something in Brannon Braga that most others don’t.
The two, who worked on the short-lived CBS series “Threshold,” are teaming together again for a new series ABC is considering called “Flash Forward,” a series the network is considering coupling with its hit “Lost.”
The idea is based on a novel by Robert J. Sawyer where every single person in the world blacks out for exactly 2 minutes and 17 seconds. During that time, they receive a mysterious vision about the future, something that must be dealt with.
ABC is looking at the series after HBO passed, and is close to ordering a pilot be shot. Already on board a potential series is Jessika Borsiczky, Goyer’s wife who worked on projects such as the “Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model Search,” as well as Vince Gerardis and Ralph M. Vicinanza from “Jumper” fame.
Goyer is very popular in the comic book world, especially for his work on both “The Dark Knight” and “Batman Begins.” He also worked on “The Unborn.”
Braga, of course, is well known to most science-fiction fans. He got his start as a writer for “Star Trek: The Next Generation” beginning with the November 1990 episode “Reunion,” and would go on to become a co-producer of that series before working his way to executive producer for “Star Trek: Voyager,” “Star Trek: Enterprise” and “Threshold” before becoming a co-executive producer with the Fox series “24” this year.
