ABC's Traveler to debut (finally) on May 30

TravelerWhen the new fall schedules were announced last year, one of the shows that I was most looking forward to, ABC's mystery-drama Traveler, wasn't on the schedule. Which was sort of surprising since it got a lot of positive buzz in the upfront presentation that the network gave. And then we had all of the serialized dramas failing badly (The Nine, Smith, Daybreak, etc) and it seemed like Traveler would never premiere.

But ABC has announced that Traveler will indeed make it's debut on May 30, at 10pm. The number of episodes has been trimmed a little, and it looks like it's going to be one of those shows that will have a definite end, maybe like a long miniseries, so viewers won't feel cheated. Which is good news for TV fans these days, I guess.

Traveler is about three best friends who go to a museum, and when they are there two of them are framed for the bombing by the third, who they find isn't who they think he was. In fact, they can't even prove he ever existed, and the show is about them on the run, trying to find the guy and clear their names.

Does anyone else think that one of those guys (don't know which one) looks like a young Michael York? He should be in an Austin Powers movie!

Sounds like an interesting premise ... it'd be great if it were a long miniseries, since serialized shows don't have great track records.

Bob,
I'm with you. I thought Traveler was one of the two or three best pilots. ABC held it for mid-season and then, I think, it got cold feet when most of the serials tanked in the fall. It might do better than the network imagines in the summer. Its way better than most summer dumps (see last summer's Luke Perry vehicle about the lottery).
