A team comprised of scientist Rufus, solider Wyatt, and historian Lucy must then use the machine’s prototype to travel back in time to critical events and undo the damage Flynn has done.

The series was produced by Dony, Universal TV, is a production of Sony Pictures Television, Davis Entertainment, MiddKid Productions and Kripke Enterprises.
