Timewasters - US Remake of British Time Travel Comedy In Development At ABC

A Black Lady Sketch Show head writer Lauren Ashley Smith is to write and exec produce the U.S. remake of British comedy Timewasters, which is in the works at ABC.

The U.S. adaptation will revolve around four Black twenty-something New Yorkers who accidentally end up in the year 1926, despite being deeply unenthusiastic about and deeply unequipped for time travel. The series follows the foursome’s often bumbling attempts to survive and thrive in the Harlem Renaissance as it explores what it means to be Black in 2021, what it means to be Black in 1926, and the unique experience of being Black in both time periods.
