ABC has scheduled what they are calling a “sneak preview” of the pilot of its upcoming drama series Traveler to air following Grey’s Anatomy on Thursday, May 10.
The show will then move over to its regular time slot on Wednesday, May 30 when the premiere episode airs from 9:00-10:00 p.m., taking over for Lost when it finishes its run this season. Additionally, the network has announced they will be airing a clip show of Lost on May 17 (also a Thursday after Grey’s Anatomy). The clip show will also repeat the following Wednesday before the finale for Lost.
Men In Trees was originally expected (though never announced) to return this season for its final episodes, but this new scheduling likely means the remaining five episodes of the series will be rolled over into the second season.
Jay, Tyler and Will are friends who have spent the last two years in grad school. They are about to depart on a summer trip when a simple prank to rollerblade through one of New York City’s most famous museums makes Jay and Tyler prime suspects in a terrorist bombing that destroys the museum seconds later. Hopeful that Will can help clear up this misunderstanding, they learn he’s been missing since the explosion and think he may be dead. They’re unable to turn to authorities when they realize they can’t prove Will even exists. In every photo from the past two years, he has managed to block his face.
Who will believe them? Friends, family, lovers? The boys are pawns in a conspiracy that will take years to unravel, and the government may not have their best interests at heart. Their friendship will be tested like never before as they try to uncover the truth, while avoiding detection of not only the FBI, but everyone in America who has seen their faces on TV as suspects in the bombing.
