Flash Forward picked up for 13 episodes
W00t! The Hollywood Reporter and Variety and TV Guide are all reporting that late today (Friday, May 8, 2009), ABC gave a series order for Flash Forward, the TV show based on my novel of the same name.
The Hollywood Reporter says it's a 13-episode order, which is a big commitment (many shows only get six-episode initial orders).
Carolyn and I happen to be in Waterloo, Ontario, right now, having a nice evening at the home of friends Marcel Gagné and Sally Tomasevic -- so we're all celebrating now. :)
