Joining the incredibly talented McCormack are MacKenzie Porter, Jared Abrahamson, J. Alex Brinson, Nesta Cooper, Reilly Dolman, Patrick Gilmore, Arnold Pinnock, Dylan Playfair and Ian Tracey.
Brad Wright, co-creator of ‘Stargate SG-1‘ and creator of related series ‘Stargate: Atlantis‘ and ‘SGU‘ is behind ‘Travelers‘ creation and he will write the series as well. The series lives in an area that is right in his wheel-house as it’s set hundreds of years from now when the last surviving humans discover the means of sending consciousness back through time, directly into people in the 21st century. They are the “travelers” and they appear as simply random people, but secretly they work in teams, carrying out missions that will save humanity from a terrible future.
The characters that make up these teams are intelligent and very different from one another with McCormack leading the group playing FBI Special Agent Grant MacLaren, Marcy (Porter), a young woman in the care of a social worker, David (Gilmore), for an intellectual disability, Trevor (Abrahamson), a high school quarterback, Dolman plays a heroin-addicted college student, Philip, and Cooper will be Carly, a single mom in an abusive relationship.
This hot mess will have to rely on their knowledge of history, aided by archived social media profiles, the team discovers that their daily lives are as much a challenge as their dangerous missions.
The series will have multiple directors beginning with Nick Hurran (Sherlock) covering the pilot, while 5 other directors with credits like ‘Lost Girl‘, ‘Vikings‘, ‘Killjoys‘ and ‘Continuum‘ among them. We don’t have an estimated date for it’s debut at this time.
