Logline: 
A professor of history and a morning zoo shock jock lead an unlikely team of misfits in adventures through time at the behest of the US Government and an eccentric billionaire.
Synopsis/Details: 

Victoria Adams is a world renown archeologist and historical author. Ace Buttons is the king of Kansas City media. Normally, these two would never cross paths for any reason. However, when the US Government and eccentric billionaire cable maven Miles Jefferson come together and create the world's first time machine, Victoria and Ace find themselves shackled together in the wake.

Miles wants to create a dynamic and original time travel reality show that will help launch his new cable channel and has provided majority of the funding into the project to give him access. The government wants a more complete historical record to the world to help guide any future endeavors. Politics makes strange bedfellows and that applies not just to Miles and the Government's arrangement but to Victoria and Ace.

What follows is a series of adventures through time with Victoria, Ace, a boy genius, his robot and a skeleton tv crew. Each episode finds them in a new place and time, exploring the past, creating a kick ass reality show and trying not to kill each other.

The Writer: Kris Simonian

In the past seven years, I have worked with an Emmy award winning writer. In those seven years, I helped to develop both TV series and feature-length films for Showtime, HBO, and various independent producers. Independently, I currently have two projects in development - "1992" is a dramatic feature about the 1992 Los Angeles riots. "Ringside" is a dramatic series about an aging and disrespected boxing promoter who gets an unlikely second shot at greatness. In 2012 I won a silver Telly award for Relentless Development, and in 2011 I won "Best writing" and "Best Dramedy" categories at the LA WebFest for my web series Ghouls. Check out my web page at...
