TV: Zoey Andata and Demetri Noh

Engaged, criminal defense attorney Zoey Andata (played by Gabrielle Union) and Special Agent Demetri Noh (played by John Cho) are a couple unsure of their future because of their FlashForwards.

FlashForward is a science fiction drama which premiered in September 2009. The characters, for the most part, simultaneously see a vision of themselves in the future, and the show focuses on their actions after this event. For Zoey and Demetri, this may mean they don't get married as they planned.

UPDATE 5/14/10: ABC has cancelled the show! :(

My Comments: I couldn't say that Kamar was WM in my labels. So there's a new label of BW/HM. At the moment, many of the other posts may not be accurately labeled. Please give me time to look at them and make any changes.
