Timeless: it's a sci-fi drama that will premiere after The Voice. It has a Doctor Who's vibe and it will revolve around a group of people that travel back in time in order to save the future of the planet.
Designated Survivor: Kiefer Sutherland is back. After Touch, he will be the protagonist of this drama which is set after a nuclear explosion. Sutherland's character is obliged to become the president of the United States. The cast includes Nikita's Maggie Q. The story is interesting but tricky.
