Mission Statement

With Another Period in Time, our goal was to have gender parity both in front and behind the camera. To that goal, we have a cast that is more than 50% female and 5 of our 8 series regulars are women. Our crew is also 50% female and both our cast & crew is diverse and inclusive.

The Story


What would happen if someone from the 1800s woke up in modern day Atlanta?  


And then we took it 1 step further.  We wanted to explore what it would be like for a free black woman from 1863 (aka the middle of the Civil War) who worked as a nurse in New York City  to suddenly wake up in 2018 Atlanta. Introducing Rose.


To complicate matters further, the first person she runs into is a self-entitled priviledged white woman named Alex.


An unliklely alliance forms as Rose, searches for a way back.


Meanwhile, Alex's motivations are unclear...
