Nearly 24 hours after ABC gave a green light to Time After Time, NBC has ordered to series its own time travel drama, which is now titled Timeless (fka Time).
From Eric Kripke (Revolution), Shawn Ryan (The Shield) and the producers of The Blacklist, Timeless is described as an action-adventure series in which a mysterious criminal (ER alum Goran Visnjic) steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America as we know it by changing the past. Our only hope is an unexpected team: a scientist (Better Off Ted‘s Malcolm Barrett), soldier (90210‘s Matt Lanter) and history professor (Rectify‘s Abigail Spencer) who must use the machine’s prototype to travel back in time to critical events.
While this intrepid trio must make every effort not to affect the past themselves, they must also stay one step ahead of this dangerous fugitive.
The cast also includes Paterson Joseph (The Leftovers), Sakina Jaffrey (House of Cards) and Claudia Doumit.
