Traveler (ABC 2007, Aaron Stanford, Billy Mayo)

Published

on

How well do you know your friends? Would you bet your life on it? That’s the question in “Traveler,” an action-packed drama series that taps into 21st century paranoia with provocative themes, complex characters and pure adrenaline-fueled entertainment.

Jay, Tyler and Will are friends who have spent the last two years in grad school. They are about to depart on a summer trip when a simple prank to rollerblade through one of New York City’s most famous museums makes Jay and Tyler prime suspects in a terrorist bombing that destroys the museum seconds later. Hopeful that Will can help clear up this misunderstanding, they learn he’s been missing since the explosion and think he may be dead. They’re unable to turn to authorities when they realize they can’t prove Will even exists. In every photo from the past two years, he has managed to block his face.

Who will believe them? Friends, family, lovers? The boys are pawns in a conspiracy that will take years to unravel, and the government may not have their best interests at heart. Their friendship will be tested like never before as they try to uncover the truth, while avoiding detection of not only the FBI, but everyone in America who has seen their faces on TV as suspects in the bombing.

Director David Nutter, who has defined many hit series including “The X-Files,” “Without a Trace” and “Supernatural,” along with the “Eight Below” writer David DiGilio and “American Beauty” Oscar-winning producers Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen, combine “The Fugitive” and “Enemy of the State” into a taut thriller about innocents on the run.
