ER alum Goran Visnjic is returning to NBC with a key role in Time, the network’s action adventure drama pilot from Supernatural creator Eric Kripke and The Shield creator Shawn Ryan.

The project, from Sony Pictures TV and studio-based Davis Entertainment, is described as “Back To The Future meets Mission: ImpoNBC logo 2016ssible.” It is a high-octane drama following an unlikely trio (Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett) who travel through time to battle a master criminal (Visnjic) intent on altering the fabric of human history with potentially catastrophic results.

Vulnerable, damaged and oddly emotional, Visnjic’s Garcia Flynn is a dangerous man who’s recently stolen a time machine and traveled with his team of soldiers to the hours prior to the Hindenburg’s explosion. Flynn is guided by a strange journal from some other period of time, and while his full plan is still shrouded in mystery, it’s clear that he must be stopped.

Ryan and Kripke co-wrote the script and executive produce with Davis Entertainment’s John Davis and John Fox and MiddKid Prods.’ Marney Hochman.

Best known for his breakout role as Dr. Luca Kovac on NBC’s long-running medical drama ER, Visnjic recently co-starred on CBS’ Extant and international drama Crossing Lines. He is repped by WME and Management 360.
