The break for 'FlashForward' is actually a 'luxury' earned by the team for starting the production early this Fall.
Things happened in contrary to two of ABC's shows, "FlashForward" and "Cougar Town". While the latter is resuming its production after taking a break, the former is shutting down its. ABC has pushed the brake on "FlashForward", putting it to rest for six days in order to "boost the writing". This is actually something which the producers had planned all along.
A rep of the show said, "They want to maintain the high quality of the show, and this gives the writers the opportunity to do so." The series about mysterious global blackout will begin filming again on Monday, November 30 for the 13th episode. The series is not exactly a stellar performer with it hitting a series low on last Thursday, November 19.
Meanwhile, over at "Cougar Town", the show will roll the camera again after Thanksgiving. The half-hour comedy will begin filming for the rest of season 1 on Monday, November 30 also. A rep from ABC said that Courteney Cox who became the reason of the hiatus, is "fine" and will be back to work after the break.
