Location

Denver, Colorado, United States

The majority of the series takes place in and around ‘Denver' (though this could be shifted to any large city.) A few scenes, involving the drug cartel, would require a Mexican feel. Urban streets and the mountainous landscape of the Front Range are the dominant exterior locations. For the most part, the interiors are commonplace and everyday: bars, restaurants, offices and apartments.
Era

Present Day

The series is set, for the most part, in contemporary Denver and as such would afford ample opportunity for product placement, from beers and food chains to fashion brands and cars.

Logline

Walter and Travis' respective worlds are turned upside down when, after the death of their mother, their long-dead father appears, dragging them into a world of time-travel, conspiracy theories and constant danger.

Synopsis

1981: A research project into time-travel is derailed when, fearing for his life and worried about the true motivations of the federal agency he works for, George Donaldson, the lead scientist on the project, disappears along with the device that makes time-travel possible.
2016: George's two sons, Walter, a congressman running for a second term, and Travis, an ex black-ops agent who has spent the last year mired in the criminal underworld of Mexico, reconnect after the passing of their mother. Unbeknownst to the brothers, their father has been travelling through time in an effort to stop the assassination of Walter and DARPA (Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency), the federal agency in charge of the time-travel project, are hot on his heels. Past, present and future collide as a father attempts to save his son, those in power use all means at their disposal (both moral and immoral) to stop him and the lines between right and wrong are blurred.
2045: In a grim and desolate America, George and an unexpected ally link the fall of civilisation back to the assassination of Walter and determine to set things right.
The show moves between time frames exploring the nature of loss, the fragility of relationships and the corrupting power excerpted by those elected to protect us.
