This TV science fiction action drama is based on the familiar fantasy notion: what if it were possible to go back and do it all over again, minus mistakes? Ex-CIA agent Frank Parker (Jonathan LaPaglia) is yanked from a mental institution and assigned to a top-secret project engineered from a Roswell-based alien technology. The government has developed a device that can send a single human being into the past — but only as far back as seven days. Parker has been selected to do this each week because of his contempt for authority, his ability to withstand pain, and his photographic memory. When the action cools down, Parker flirts with gorgeous Russian scientist Olga Vukavitch (Justina Vail). Filmed in L.A., the series premiered with a two-hour pilot on October 7, 1998 on United Paramount Network. — Bhob Stewart
