'FlashForward' Fans Staged Massive Blackout


'FlashForward' Fans Staged Massive Blackout


In several cities across the United States as well as abroad, fans of the show passed out simultaneously to show support on the canceled show.

Fans of U.S. TV show "FlashForward converged across the globe on Thursday, June 10 for a mass protest against the series' cancellation - staging fake 'blackouts' in cities including New York, London and Los Angeles.

The programme, starring Joseph Fiennes, centered around a mass blackout in which the majority of the world's population loses consciousness for several minutes and has a glimpse into the future. But network bosses concluded the lacklustre ratings did not justify a second season and axed "FlashForward" as part of a massive TV cull which saw a string of high-profile shows fall.

Fans were left reeling by the news and have now staged a massive protest in a bid to convince ABC chiefs to change their minds. The fake blackouts saw devotees fall to the ground simultaneously for a total of two minutes and 17 seconds in Britain, Ireland and Italy, as well as a string of cities in North America including Toronto, Canada, Atlanta, Georgia, Seattle, Washington, Chicago, Illinois, New York, and Los Angeles.

Fans holding 'Save FlashForward' signs even fainted outside the ABC offices in Burbank, California, according to Deadline.com.
