Shawn Ryan was born on October 11, 1966 in Rockford, Illinois, USA. He is a producer and writer, known for The Shield (2002), S.W.A.T. (2017) and Timeless (2016). He has been married to Cathy Cahlin Ryan since April 25, 1998. They have two children.


STORYLINE
An unlikely trio travel through time in order to battle unknown criminals and protect history as we know it.

TRIVIA:
NBC cancelled the series on May 10, 2017, then reversed the decision on May 13, 2017. One of the co-creators said that 10 episodes are planned for summer 2018.

Erik Kripke said that one reason he wanted the Hindenburg in the pilot was financial. He said "They're going to give us more money to make a pilot, so let's go with the most expensive idea we can think of, that they would never let us do in a series. So we were like 'Alright, let's crash a freaking blimp!' "

The date in time that the team will travel to during each episode is displayed as the last four set of numbers on the Flip Clock in the opening credits where the word TIMELESS eventually appears.

The names of the three main characters are references to characters in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (1989). Lucy Preston and Wyatt Logan have the same last names as Bill Preston and Ted Logan. Rufus Carlin is a nod to Rufus, who was played by George Carlin.
