Last spring, I was asked to put together some images of how I thought the first season of a series could look, loosely based on the movie. A time traveler, James Cole is sent back from a plague-ravaged 2044 to the present day, to try and prevent the pandemic occurring, and thus erase the dystopian future. In the present, he is aided by the beautiful and resourceful Dr. Cassandra Railly. But instead of a 90-minute feature, this would be thirteen hours, so Cole and Railly's journey would by necessity be a bit more involved.
