Malcolm Barrett, a native of New York City, studied at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. He recently worked on several NY based television series including "Law & Order" and "The Sopranos", "As the World Turns" and "The Beat". His feature film credits include "King of the Jungle," "Swimfan," and most recently, "The Rhythm of the Saints," shown at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival. Barrett received his Equity membership at the age of 16 when he appeared in the McCarter Theatre production of "The Stonemason." He later appeared in the national tour of "Wit" with Judith Light, while simultaneously continuing his education at NYU.

Barrett is also talented in poetry, improvisation and stand up comedy. He was a member of the 2001 Nuyorican Slam Poetry team and the winner of the Young Playwright competition at Manhattan Class Company. He is a founding member and artistic director of the non-profit New York City theater company Real Theatre Works. Barrett developed and directed the theater's production of "Fallen Patriots" off-off Broadway and will direct the play for the upcoming Fringe Festival in New York.

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

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.
