New showrunners at FlashForward

The new showrunning team at FlashForward, the ABC TV series based on my novel of the same name, is: Jessika Borsiczky, Lisa Zwerling, and Timothy J. Lea.

Jessika — who is from Montreal — was the person who first read my novel a decade ago, and pursued getting it made as a TV series; that’s her pictured above with Courtney B. Vance, who plays Stanford Wedeck. (Jess’s last name is pronounced Bor-shees-key.)

Let me underscore this: Jessika Borsiczky has been behind this series from the very beginning, and she’s been executive producer since day one; there is absolute continuity of vision here.

Lisa has been with the show since the beginning, too (and before that worked on ER). Tim joined the show in November (in fact, his first day was one of the days I was working in the writers’ room), and immediately brought wonderful insights to the room; he’s previously worked on CSI: NY and Law and Order: Criminal Intent.

They’re all terrific people, and the show is indeed in very good hands.

You can read more at Variety and Zap 2 It.

FlashForward returns with all-new episodes on Thursday, March 18, 2010.
