Premise: Produced by Eric Kripke (Revolution & Supernatural) and Shawn Ryan (The Shield), Timeless is about a criminal who steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America as we know it by changing the past. Out to stop him is an unexpected team: a scientist, soldier and history professor who must use the machine’s prototype to travel back in time to critical events.

Can this handpicked team uncover the mystery behind it all and end his destruction before it’s too late?
