Watch The First 10 Minutes Of NBC's High-Concept, 'Lost'-Esque Drama 'Manifest' Ahead Of Series Premiere

As a part of its marketing campaign, NBC has released the first ten minutes of its upcoming supernatural fantasy drama Manifest. 

The series, which has been said to give off This Is Us vibes (along with the network’s midseason selection, The Village) with Lost-like qualities, is highly anticipated.

The description: When Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent but routine flight, the crew and passengers were relieved. Yet in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years and their friends, families and colleagues, after mourning their loss, had given up hope and moved on. Now, faced with the impossible, they’re all given a second chance. But as their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds and some of the returned passengers soon realize they may be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible. From Robert Zemeckis and Jack Rapke comes an emotionally rich, unexpected journey into a world grounded in hope, heart and destiny.

The cast includes Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis, J.R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina and Parveen Kaur.

The series premieres September 24.
