…without doing too much damage to the timeline.
Directed By: Jack Bender
Starring: Shane McRae, Jennifer Ferrin, Robbie Jones, Jeff Fahey, Keon Alexan, Keisha Castle Hughes, Matthew Bennett, David Cronenberg
The film opens with an apparent terrorist attack involving a nuclear device which destroys New York City killing 9 million people. The perpetrator, Benjamin Rourke, a Nobel prize winning physicist, had become embittered by the death of his wife, and having learned that there is a potential time travel experiment in progress, he engineers the bomb plot to force the US Government to send agents back to prevent the disaster happening.
He had also arranged matters that the only way to do this was to have them prevent his wife’s death.
The story describes the process of the team, CIA agents Sean Knox and Danny Gates, and scientist Lyndsay Bryce, arriving at this conclusion and their efforts to achieve this without doing too much damage to the timeline.

This was a pilot for a series that was not picked up by the network. It was the second attempt in the 2000’s to revamp the successful 1960’s Irwin Allen series The Time Tunnel. Allen was the blockbuster TV producer of Lost In Space, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea and Land of the Giants. Like the other Time Tunnel reboot, both suffered from being too similar to the already successful and recent Stargate.
