'Manifest' First Look: Josh Dallas Says Series Is 'Storytelling on a Huge Canvas' (Exclusive)

By

Manifest is jetting straight for your TV sets.

NBC's upcoming drama is one of dozens of new shows vying for your attention this fall, and lucky for you, only ET has an exclusive sneak peek at the ambitious series, which has been garnering comparisons to Lost.

When Montego Air Flight 828 lands after a turbulent but otherwise routine flight, the 191 passengers and its crew believe only a few hours have passed, but for the rest of the world, it's been over five years. As the passengers try to reintegrate themselves into the world, some of them experience strange phenomena, leading them to believe there may be something greater at play.

"What I loved about Manifest is that it's storytelling on a huge canvas," Josh Dallas, former star of Once Upon a Time, says in the exclusive video. "Everything that they know about the world has completely changed," Melissa Roxburgh adds.

It becomes increasingly clear that there may be a larger conspiracy behind the scenes and as they attempt to make sense of what is really going on, the Montego Air Flight 828 passengers may be faced with their biggest challenge.

"For the people that were on the plane, this event that happens to them -- whatever this is -- there could be something bigger than all of them that is actually driving this, that has a plan," Dallas teases, adding that viewers are in for a real roller-coaster ride. "I think it's going to go places that are completely unexpected and for an audience, what more fun is that?"

In addition to Dallas and Roxburgh, Manifest also stars Athena Karkanis, JR Ramirez, Parveen Kaur, Luna Blaise and Jack Messina.

Watch the first act from the Manifest series premiere below.

Manifest premieres Monday, Sept. 24 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
