There are several time-travel shows currently on — or coming to — your TV sets. How many of them feature a duffel bag as a time machine? Definitely only one: Making History.
Adam Pally, of Happy Endings fame, stars as Dan, a facilities manager at a college who has been time-tripping back to the 1700s New England, where/when he’s dating Paul Revere’s daughter Deborah (Leighton Meester). Before Making History debuts (March 5 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on Fox), check out this first-look clip from the premiere, in which Dan tries to persuade a history professor named Chris (Yassir Lester) to hop in a gym bag and help him start the Revolutionary War because something about current-day Massachusetts seems a little off, a little… British. Chris seems skeptical, asking Dan a very fair question: “What story starts with a guy getting in a duffel bag in a garage and has a happy ending?”
