Showcase delves into the extraordinary with compelling Canadian content, bold characters, and gripping new adventures this fall. Created by Brad Wright and starring Toronto’s Eric McCormack, the new Canadian original time-travelling drama, Travelers, makes its world premiere in October exclusively on Showcase.
Starring Eric McCormack (Perception, Will & Grace) and created by Brad Wright (Stargate franchise), Travelers 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, directly into people in the 21st century. The series follows these “travelers” 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 team’s leader; Marcy (Alberta-native Mackenzie Porter, Hell on Wheels), a young, intellectually disabled woman in the care of her social worker, David (Edmonton’s Patrick Gilmore, You Me Her); Trevor (Manitoba-native Jared Paul Abrahamson, Awkward.), a high school quarterback; Carly (Ontario-native Nesta Marlee Cooper, Heroes Reborn), a single mom in an abusive relationship; and Philip (Reilly Dolman, 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. Travelers airs Mondays at 9pm ET/6pm PT beginning October 17 exclusively on Showcase in Canada, and will stream on Netflix internationally later this year. Visit Showcase’s Facebook and Twitter pages to meet the travelers and see the Canadian trailer.
