The new series Timeless centers on the time travel adventures of a scientist (Malcolm Barrett), historian (Abigail Spencer), and soldier (Matt Lanter). A team-up with top notch producers/scribes Eric Kripke (Supernatural) and Shawn Ryan (The Shield), the show may have its share of bells and whistles, but its main draw lies in its storytelling.
Lanter loves the “adventurous spirit” that’s infused within Timeless’ universe, and Barrett adds that the human element was another aspect which drew him to the program.
“These guys make sure that no matter what’s going on, no matter how many explosions, no matter how much butt-kicking or sci-fi effects you see, we’re always dealing with something very much grounded in real life emotion,” said Barrett of his collaboration with Kripke and Ryan.
Barrett, born and raised in New York, has always been a sci-fi fan. Click on the media bar below to hear why Timeless is a “perfect fit” for him.
