"It's been nearly 30 years since Dr. Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator and vanished," the network said in a press release on Wednesday.

"Now, a new team, led by physicist Ben Song, has been assembled to restart the project in hope of understanding the mysteries behind the machine and the man who created it," the synopsis continued. "Everything changes, however, when Ben makes an unauthorized leap into the past, leaving the team behind to solve the mystery of why he did it. At Ben's side throughout his leaps is Addison, who appears in the form of a hologram only Ben can see and hear. She's a decorated Army veteran who brings level-headed precision to her job."

The original show ran 1989-93. It starred Scott Bakula as Beckett, a scientist who inhabited a different person's body each episode due to an experiment gone awry.
