Produced by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (“The LEGO Movie,” “21 Jump Street”), and written by Julius “Goldy” Sharpe (FAMILY GUY, “The Grinder”), the new comedy MAKING HISTORY follows three friends from two different centuries as they try to balance the thrill of time travel with the mundane concerns of their present-day lives. It’s a rollicking historical adventure and a contemporary comedy about love, friendship and trying to fit in to an increasingly complex and impersonal world.
DAN (Adam Pally, “The Mindy Project,” “Happy Endings”), a facilities manager at a small Massachusetts college, recently discovered time travel and has been transporting himself back to the 1700s to spend time with the colonial woman he’s fallen for. In the present, Dan is misunderstood by all, and anxious that life is passing him by. But by claiming song lyrics, lines from movies and stand-up bits as his own in the 18th century, he’s absolutely hilarious – he gets the girl and makes friends.
But Dan’s actions in the past are messing up the present. That woman he’s dating is not just any woman. She’s Paul Revere’s daughter, DEBORAH (Leighton Meester, “Gossip Girl”), and Dan’s meddling causes her father to delay his famous ride, which may have altered the outcome of the entire American Revolution.
To set matters right, Dan enlists the help of his colleague, CHRIS (Yassir Lester, “Girls,” “Key and Peele”), a brilliant, polished and popular history professor, who’s now given the incredible opportunity to actually live the history he teaches.
Can Dan, Chris and Deborah save America as we know it? Can a woman from 1775 adapt to life in 2016? Can the three intrepid time travelers improve the past, help the helpless, fight for justice and find true love and friendship?
MAKING HISTORY is produced by 20th Century Fox Television. The series is written by Julius Sharpe.
