Quantum Leap can jump back to TV.Picture: NBC
The future of time-traveling physician Dr. Sam Beckett can be revealed at last. NBC has ordered the pilot of a new type of Quantum Leap it will happen in 30 years the first TV show is over. It will follow a new team formed to bring back the Quantum Leap project and I hope they understand what happened to Sam all those years ago.
Variety told the story of the show, which is being written by break major producers Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt. Original list maker Donald P. Bellisario is also a manufacturer. There is no mention of the return of former star Scott Bakula, coma from the description, it seems that even if he were to appear, it would be useful or perhaps even part of the cameo.
In the first five seasons between 1989 and 1993, Quantum Leap told the story of Sam Beckett (Bakula) who can jump over time to get into other people’s bodies to correct historical mistakes. On the way he was led by his best friend Al, it was played by the late Dean Stockwell, who appeared to him as a hologram. The series ended with Sam saying that he will continue to do this forever, which makes fans sad to this day.
In recent years, the return of Quantum Leap it seems inevitable. Bellisario revealed wrote the film based on demonstration, a More some good endings appeared, and Bakula the owner said he felt the show could return. Well, it is, and now it is a matter of whether NBC executives love the pilot enough to deliver a few more episodes and show them.
When it was released, Quantum Leap was ahead of its time in terms of secrecy and world-building, as well as being light and accessible to an audience that was probably not as sci-fi material. You have to think in 30 years from the time it came out, the rise of the sci-fi to the end-the rise of pop culture can make the show as successful as ever. Or an unbreakable nut.
