Timeless centers on the adventures of three individuals (Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett, Abigail Spencer) who travel back in time to ensure the safety of the Earth. A deadly organization named Rittenhouse is rewriting history in an attempt to bend reality to their own whims, and it’s up to these individuals to keep our world from going sideways.
Spencer has had an educational time playing history professor Lucy Preston. “I’m so much smarter since I started shooting the show,” said Spencer. Playing Lucy makes me seem so much smarter than I am, which is great. It’s been very interesting because every episode is a history lesson. I’ve learned about facets of history that I didn’t know existed.”
