Journeyman

Journeyman is a science fiction television drama created for American viewers. Journeyman stars Kevin McKidd as a newspaper reporter who finds himself traveling through time unexpectedly. Alex Graves and Kevin Falls are credited with being co-producers of the series; though it never went past the first 13 episodes of season one due to poor viewer ratings.

The television series centers the fictional character Dan Vasser (Mckidd). Vasser is a successful reporter, who lived with his young wife and son in San Francisco. His life is going well until one day he mysteriously jumps back in time. He eventually learns that each time he jumps back in time it leads him to a person whose destiny he has the opportunity to change. Unfortunately, while he is meant to help someone else in the past, he is dealing with significant problems in his own life. His constant unexplained absences due to time travel have caused his brother Jack (a police detective) to become suspicious of him. Additionally, his constant absences and emotional distance have severely strained his relationship with his wife and son as well as his boss and co-workers. His problems are even more complicated when he unexpectedly reconnects with a woman who he almost married, and whom he thought had died in a plane crash.

The jumps occur at random, and Dan only receives up to a few seconds notice before each jump happens. The jumps are additionally stressful, as he has no idea as to how far back he will be sent. As Dan becomes more accustomed to each jump through time, the headaches that signaled his jump become less severe and more commonplace. It is later revealed that Dan is not alone and that millions of people who were born around the time of a rare passing comet have the ability to travel through time, and each develop the ability to control their jumps. Having the ability to jump through time is stressful for Dan and other like him but it also teaches how their lives shape others around them.
