More Destruction Coming to Los Angeles on the Small Screen
Here's one of several trends on this fall's TV schedule: Los Angeles is destroyed. And then destroyed again.
We wrote about NBC's Day One a few weeks ago. The show revolves around some sort of alien force that destroys downtown -- and a group of resistance leaders in Van Nuys who attempt to save the world.
Now comes ABC's "Flash Forward," which you may have already seen promoted on air during the season finale of "Lost." The show centers on the idea that everyone in the world blacks out for 2 minutes and 17 seconds -- and when they wake up, the world is burning. People soon realize that while passed out, they witnessed what they were doing eight months from now.
ABC screened the first act break for advertisers last week... and as you can see in the promo above, Los Angeles' downtown gets hit hard by the chaos.
