Starring Eric McCormack (Perception,Â Will & Grace) and created by Brad Wright (StargateÂ franchise),Â TravelersÂ is a brand new original contemporary drama with a futuristic twist. Hundreds of years from now, the last surviving humans discover how to send consciousness through time, directlyÂ intoÂ peopleÂ inÂ theÂ 21stÂ century.Â The series follows these â€œtravelersâ€ as they assume the lives of seemingly random people, while secretly working to save humanity from a terrible future. The travelers are: FBI Special Agent Grant MacLaren (McCormack), the teamâ€™s leader; Marcy (Alberta-native Mackenzie Porter,Â Hell on Wheels), a young, intellectually disabled woman in the care of her social worker, David (Edmontonâ€™s Patrick Gilmore,Â You Me Her);â€¯Trevor (Manitoba-native Jared Paul Abrahamson,Â Awkward.), a high school quarterback; Carly (Ontario-native Nesta Marlee Cooper,Heroes Reborn), a single mom in an abusive relationship; and Philip (Reilly Dolman,Â Supernatural), a heroin-addicted college student.
Armed only with their knowledge of history and an archive of social media profiles, the travelers discover that 21st century lives and relationships are as much of a challenge as their high-stakes missions. Produced by Peacock Alley Entertainment.Â TravelersÂ airsÂ Mondays atÂ 9pm ET/6pm PTÂ beginningÂ October 17Â exclusively on Showcase in Canada, and will stream on Netflix internationally later this year.
