ABCs LOST remains on the other side until further instructions from the revival gods, but NBC is readying its own LOST-like drama in Manifest.
NBC has given a pilot order to Manifest, a high-concept mystery thriller, which is exploring such a hypothetical scenario. The drama, one of the first sales of the 2017 pitch season with a put pilot commitment, hails from The Mysteries of Laura creator Jeff Rake and producer Robert Zemeckis. Warner Bros. TV, where both Zemeckis and Rake have overall deals, is the studio.
In Manifest, written/executive produced by Rake, a plane disappears from radar and returns five years later after being untraceable and presumed lost at sea. No time has passed for those on the plane but, for their loved ones at home, a long five years have gone by. The series follows their personal lives as well as the larger mystery and purpose that is their destiny.
Stay tuned to see if Manifest lands to series at NBC.
