We are currently working on the exciting action adventure “QUANTUM LEAP,” a reboot of the popular Classic 1990s sci-fi drama which will debut later this fall in September on NBC, starring Raymond Lee, Ernie Hudson, Caitlin Bassett, Nanrisa Lee, and Mason Alexander Park.
The Legendary Ernie Hudson stars as Hebert “Magic” Williams, the head of the Quantum Leap project who has to juggle taking care of his team while also answering to the Pentagon.
Hudson recently reprised his signature character Winston Zeddemore in the new Jason Reitman movie ”Ghostbusters: Afterlife” for SONY and wrapped the Bobby Farrelly-directed ”Champions” opposite Woody Harrelson. He executive produces and stars in the BET series ”The Family Business” and will next be seen in the upcoming third season of Showtime’s ”City on a Hill” and in the Catherine Hardwicke film ”Prisoner’s Daughter” opposite Brian Cox and Kate Beckinsale.
MORE ABOUT QUANTUM LEAP
It’s been nearly 30 years since Dr. Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator and vanished. Now, a new team, led by their physicist Ben Song (Raymond Lee), has been assembled to restart the project in the hopes of understanding the mysteries behind the machine and the man who created it.
But everything changes when Ben makes an unauthorized leap into the past, leaving our 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 military bosses who will not be happy once they learn about the breach of protocol. The rest of the team at the 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.
