The show follows the adventures of scientists Tony and Doug, who have been inadvertently trapped inside the time tunnel, a top-secret experimental time machine created by the U.S. government. They travel randomly backwards and forwards in time visiting the sites of many important historical events. The tunnel’s operators frantically try to retrieve them.

A pilot for a new series was produced in 2002, but did not proceed to a series.
