”THE FLARE coming to FOX this Summer!“, wrote Shiri Appleby on Instagram along with the first promotional picture. Her former Roswell co-star Katherine Heigl, who is currently in Toronto filming the final season of USA’s “Suits”, commented on the photo saying “You look like such a badass in that leather jacket…plus the fact you haven’t aged in 20 years…all adds up to fantastic. I’ll be watching girl.”
“The Flare is based on fictional author TJ Whitford’s sci-fi book series, The Moon is the Sun at Night, which has been a favorite of Savage’s since childhood. The book revolves around a solar event and its effects on Earth – specifically, the small, blue-collar town of Milford, IL – and slowly unfolds into a post-apocalyptic battle for human survival.
A half-hour “The Flare” after show titled “What Just Happened??! With Fred Savage” has been announced, as well. The spoof show explores the “fandom” surrounding the fake sci-fi thriller series, set visits to “The Flare”, interviews with the ‘cast’ and more.
