As Quantum Leap fans are well aware, there have been various projects in the works over the past decade.
In 2002, there was talk of the Sci-Fi Channel (now Syfy) wanting to do a new pilot movie and series, essentially revolving around the daughter of Sam (Scott Bakula) as a new leaper and Al (Dean Stockwell) as her holographic helper. It was never made.
In 2007, Quantum Leap co-executive producer Deborah Pratt shopped her own movie. This project would have continued the original show’s storyline and would have included Sam’s daughter as well (a character Pratt created during the original series).
