New to Fate’s Wide Wheel – Video Podcast

As a new chapter of Quantum Leap looks to be upon us, we’ve decided to add a video component to our podcast.

One thing’s for sure – we certainly got faces made for podcasting.

Watch for the deep dive, but here are some things that our source has confirmed:

1. The casting notice that started making its way around last week is accurate. Our new leaper is Dr. Ben Prassad. His holographic companion will be a woman named Addison.

2. This will be much more of an ensemble show than the classic series. We’re going to see a lot more of Project Quantum Leap – including Ian, a non-binary person, and head programmer; Jenn, head of security; and Herbert “Magic” Williams, the retired-military liaison between the project and the Pentagon. (Also a legacy character: Sam leaped into Magic in “The Leap Home, Part II – Vietnam”.)

3. Though it has not been confirmed Scott Bakula will be involved, it is the producers’ intention for Sam to be an integral part of the story, calling on Bakula to at least occasionally guest star.

  1. I think this reboot WILL be a failure. It doesn’t involve Scott Bakula as a main lead, yes he’s 67 but viewers will be expecting what happened to Sam? Al?

    If Scott Bakula doesn’t feature heavily in the pilot explaining the above, fans who loved the classic show will turn-off.

    it would have been better to have Scott Bakula as a lead, people WOULD watch, gradually induce a new leaper ( Sammy Jo Family) use Scott as well.

    Instead Scott Bakula is in the background……used sparingly it seems.

    That’s why I think this reboot wil fail…..

    Despite my doubts, I will be watching the pilot, just wished Scott Bakula was the lead…..
