ABC has temporarily shut down production on its rookie drama "FlashForward."
The move comes a month after the departure of co-showrunner Marc Guggenheim and less than a week after the show hit a new ratings low.
ABC confirmed the shutdown in a statement to TheWrap.com: "They already had this built into the schedule. That’s why they started production early, so that they could have the luxury to do this. They want to maintain the high quality of the show, and this gives the writers the opportunity to do so."
