The SyFy channel has given a green light for a new pilot named Rewind. The two-hour pilot will introduce an team of military operatives & civilians scientists who use secret technology to travel back in time to order to prevent a terror attack from occurring in the future.

Justin Marks is the writer with BermanBraun and Universal producing. This is the first new pilot for SyFy since 2010 when Alphas and Three Inches were made. Alphas went to series while Three Inches did not. Alphas has been recently renewed for a second season and is also from BermanBraun & Universal.

Rewind is set to start work in April.

Haven't we already seen this when it was called 7 Days? Or more recently Source Code?

Yes, I agree with Kevin. Seems like their new show is a copy cat of other ideas. I suppose at this point in tv and cinema, totally original ideas are very, very rare. Oh well!

Yeah, it's pretty much the same idea as 7 Days, except using a team instead of one guy. It could be good as an ensamble show. Although this is the same guy who wrote "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li." We all know how great that was.

UPDATE: Keisha Castle-Hughes (last seen in Whale Rider), Jennifer Ferrin (last seen in The Cape), Robbie Jones (last seen in Hellcats), and Keon Mohajeri have all be cast in the Rewind pilot.

Priya, played by Castle-Hughes, is a behavioral anthropologist who serves as a historical expert for the missions.

Bryce, played by Ferrin, is a Type-A personality scientist who graduated from MIT at 18.

Danny, played by Jones, is the best friend to Henry Knox (played by Shane McRae).

Charlie, played by Mohajeri, is a brilliant mathematician who created & patented technology to represent history in mathematical formulas that will be used to track the results of the missions into the past.

Production on the pilot is expected to start within a couple of weeks.
