New Time Travel Thriller ‘Rewind’ Gets 2 Hour Pilot


A crack team of army guys and scientists must travel back in time using a machine that’s been untested to change the past to save us from a horrible terrorist event. This is the premise behind Rewind which has just been given the go ahead for a two-hour pilot from Syfy.

I do like a good time travel show and this one sounds like a mix of Stargate, the Time Tunnel and a pinch of Source Code. However time travel shows are difficult to pull off and make accessible to everyone so the production team have a tough time ahead of them with this one but I’m looking forward to seeing the results.

At least if the shows a dud they can always go back in time and redo it again. And again. And again.


NEW YORK – January 18, 2012 — Syfy has given a two-hour pilot greenlight to the action thriller Rewind from BermanBraun and Universal Cable Productions, it was announced today by Mark Stern, President of Original Content, Syfy and Co-Head of Original Content for Universal Cable Productions.

“We couldn’t be happier to be back in business with BermanBraun. Justin Marks has created a time-travel series with an exciting innovative approach that really exemplifies Syfy’s commitment to bring compelling storytelling to life,” said Stern.

The thriller revolves around a team of military field operatives and civilian scientists who must use untested technology to travel back in time to alter past events in order to change the future and avoid a devastating terrorist attack. Justin Marks wrote the pilot and will executive produce with Tom Spezialy, Gail Berman, Lloyd Braun and Gene Stein.
