BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., April 19 (UPI) -- Production has begun in Vancouver on the original sci-fi series Travelers, starring Eric McCormack, Netflix announced Tuesday.

"My old friend Brad Wright has created a fantastic, complex story with some very rich and complicated characters, and I'm awfully happy to be one of them," McCormack -- who is best known for his work on the sitcom Will & Grace -- said in a statement.

"We're thrilled to be working with Showcase and Netflix and are so proud that Travelers was originally developed at the CFC Prime Time TV Program with Canadian writers," added Wright. "We're excited to work with this amazing cast led by Eric McCormack. It's all a dream come true for a Scarborough boy like me."

The show's ensemble also includes Mackenzie Porter, Patrick Gilmore, Reilly Dolman and Nesta Marlee Cooper.

"Hundreds of years from now, the last surviving humans discover the means of sending consciousness back through time, directly into people in the 21st century," a synopsis said. "These 'travelers' assume the lives of seemingly random people, while secretly working as teams to perform missions in order to save humanity from a terrible future."
