Time After Time Official Lowdown


Using the 1979 novel and movie as a launching point, Time After Time chronicles the adventures of a young HG Wells. He travels through centuries, decades and days in the time machine he created.

HG Wells is in the pursuit of the charismatic (yet secretly psychopathic) Dr John Stevenson, better known as “Jack the Ripper”. He arrives in modern day New York City searching for Stevenson after the doctor escapes authorities in Wells’ London home. But instead of the Utopia he imagined, Wells finds a world more aligned with Stevenson’s temperament.

The series uses creative elements from many of Wells’ classic stories, beginning with The Time Machine and The Invisible Man to The Island of Dr Moreau and others. Time After Time creates a fantasy world surrounding the events that inspired these great literary works. It’s focus is on the best and worst of human nature, and its relationship to science and technology.

Using the time machine to launch the series, Time After Time is not a time-travel show. Rather it’s a series that looks at the world of today through the eyes of yesterday. It is fully charged with danger and, adventure and centered in thrills, satire and humor. Most of all it is an epic love story.

Kevin Williamson is the creator and executive producer. Marcos Siega is executive producer and a director.
