It’s Manifest Monday and for every question answered, we find another mystery.  At New York Comic Con this weekend, we asked executive producer Jeff Rake, and series stars, Josh Dallas and Melissa Roxburgh, what is in store for our intrepid survivors of Montego Airways Flight 828 and here is what they had to say…





Josh Dallas (Ben) talks about how he approaches portraying the character of Ben and Ben’s search for the truth about what happened to him and the other passengers on Flight 828.  He also touches on the emotional entanglements of returning home to a wife and daughter who have lived without him for 5-1/2 years.


Melissa Roxburgh (Michaela) talks about the complications in the two key relationships in Michaela’s life — her brother Ben and her ex-fiance Jared.  She also talks about the audition process and working with co-star, Josh Dallas.


At NYCC, EP Jeff Rake talks about the impact of the voices and visions on our intrepid siblings, Ben and Michaela, and their key relationships in their lives.


Manfest airs Mondays at 10pm est on NBC.  You can also find it on the NBC website / app, iTunes and Amazon.

I don't binge-watch, I power-watch. I'm a major television junkie, but I love movies, too. I embraced my geek style at the turn of the millennium and have run with it since then. I have been working in the entertainment industry since forever, but it hasn't dulled my sense of wonder whenever I watch a great movie or an absorbing television show. I love genre -- sci fi, horror, fantasy -- in particular, I love vampires, the supernatural, space westerns, some slasher pics and stories / movies / shows related to witches and wizards. I also love comedies -- they make life easier. I've been traveling with Whedonopolis ( since 2007 and writing for the site since 2008. I'm always up for an interesting conversation about the latest casting and plot twists on my favorite shows and movies. The views expressed on these web sites are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of any of my employers, past or present (or future).
