ABC's new comedies have given the network something to smile about.

During that time, each person experiences a "flash-forward" to the same date about six months into the show's future: April 29, 2010. FBI agent Mark Benford (Shakespeare in Love's Joseph Fiennes) leads the investigation into the phenomenon. "The opportunity to get off a horse, out of a flouncy shirt, into a guy that wears a gun on his hip and some cuffs on the back of his belt, I'll tell you, that's quite nice," the actor says.
