In a story from Variety, ABC has halted production on FlashForward.

The work stoppage began last week and will be maintained over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Shooting will resume again on Monday with episode 13.

According to an ABC spokesperson, the stoppage was all part of the schedule from the

beginning of the season in order to "boost the writing. They want to maintain the high quality of the show, and this gives the writers the opportunity to do so."

FlashForward stars Joseph Fiennes and Sonya Walger.
