Loosely based on the 1999 novel FlashForward by Canadian Science Fiction writer Robert J. Sawyer, FlashForward, the 2009 TV series from ABC-TV is far more than simply the show's producers paying Sawyer for the rights to use the name. Not only did Sawyer visit the set during shooting of the show's pilot episode, he also had a brief cameo appearance and I understand he has continued consulting on the show. In the book the FlashForward is centered at CERN in Switzerland and is triggered when the Large Hadron Collider accelerator is being used to perform a search for the Higgs boson (also known as the "God particle") - the jump into the future is approximately 21 years. The time frame in the TV series is different as the FlashForward is triggered by unknown means and the jump into the future is approximately 6 months to 10:00 P.M EDT on April 29, 2010. But the questions remain - who are the people who triggered the FlashForward and how did they do it? We'll just have to watch the entire season and find out for ourselves.

From official release/information:
