If you know anything about the classic TV show Quantum Leap, it's that leaping from body to body—and time period to time period—is a crucial component. And the new Quantum Leap, premiering September 19 at 10/9c on NBC, will continue that legacy. Here's an official NBC description of what's to come:
"It's been nearly 30 years since Dr. Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator and vanished. Now, a new team, led by physicist Ben Song (Raymond Lee), has been assembled to restart the project in hope of understanding the mysteries behind the machine and the man who created it. 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 (Caitlin Bassett), 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. At the helm of the highly confidential operation is Herbert 'Magic' Williams (Ernie Hudson), a no-nonsense career military man who has to answer to his bosses who won't be happy once they learn about the breach of protocol. The rest of the team at headquarters includes Ian Wright (Mason Alexander Park), who runs the Artificial Intelligence unit 'Ziggy,' and Jenn Chou (Nanrisa Lee), who heads up digital security for the project. As Ben leaps from life to life, putting right what once went wrong, it becomes clear that he and the team are on a thrilling journey. However, Addison, Magic, Ian, and Jenn know that if they are going to solve the mystery of Ben's leap and bring him home, they must act fast or lose him forever."
Emphasis on "leaping from life to life." Take a second and imagine if you had the ability to do that: to hop time periods and inhabit other people's lives. Would you take it? Well, a new Quantum Leap social media filter will give you a taste of that possibility. Facebook and Instagram mobile users can follow this link (or scan the below QR code) to a filter that will transport them to one of three different time periods. Ever wanted to know what it was like to live in the '70s? Well, now's your chance. The “Take the Leap” filter is a fun, personal way to hype yourself up for the new Quantum Leap, which will be jam-packed with action, intrigue, and, of course, transporting across time and space. The filter launches September 15, so pack your bags and get ready to leap!
And remember: Watch Quantum Leap on NBC Monday, September 19 at 10/9c and next day on Peacock.
