Time after Time is an upcoming sci-fi series set to air on ABC.
Using the 1979 novel and movie as a launching point, “Time After Time” chronicles the adventures of a young H.G. Wells as he travels through centuries, decades and days in the time machine he created. In the pursuit of the charismatic (yet secretly psychopathic) Dr. John Stevenson, better known as “Jack the Ripper,” Wells arrives in modern day New York City searching for Stevenson after the doctor escapes authorities in Wells’ London home. But instead of the Utopia he imagined, Wells finds a world more aligned with Stevenson’s temperament. Using creative elements from many of Wells’ classic stories, beginning with “The Time Machine” and “The Invisible Man” to “The Island of Dr. Moreau” and others, “Time After Time” creates a fantasy world surrounding the events that inspired these great literary works that focus on the best and worst of human nature, and its relationship to science and technology. Using the time machine to launch the series, “Time After Time” is not a time-travel show, rather it’s a series that looks at the world of today through the eyes of yesterday while fully charged with danger and, adventure and centered in thrills, satire, humor – and most of all – an epic love story.
