ABC is hoping it finally found a strong companion for Lost with Flash Forward.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, David S. Goyer's spec script and Star Trek veteran Brannon Braga have landed at ABC with a pilot order and series penalty behind it.

Based on Robert J. Sawyer's sci-fi novel, Flash Forward chronicles the chaos that ensues after everyone in the world blacks out for 2 minutes, 17 seconds and has a mysterious vision of the future that changes lives forever.

Goyer will direct the pilot.
