Plot Synopsis

Produced by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, MAKING HISTORY is a half-hour comedy series that follows three friends from two different centuries, as they try to balance the thrill of time travel with the mundane concerns of their everyday lives. Dan, a facilities manager at a small Massachusetts college, recently discovered time travel and has been transporting himself back to the 1700s to spend time with the colonial woman for whom he's fallen. In the present, Dan is misunderstood by all, and anxious that life is passing him by. But by claiming song lyrics, lines from movies and stand-up bits as his own in the 18th century, he's absolutely hilarious -- he gets the girl and makes friends. But Dan's actions in the past are messing up the present. That woman he's dating is not just any woman. She's Paul Revere's daughter, Deborah, and Dan's meddling causes her father to delay his famous ride, which may have altered the outcome of the entire American Revolution. To set matters right, Dan enlists the help of a brilliant, polished and popular history professor at the college, Chris, who's now given the incredible opportunity to actually live the history he teaches. Can Dan, Chris and Deborah save America as we know it? Can a woman from 1775 adapt to life in 2016? Can the three intrepid time travelers improve the past, help the helpless, fight for justice and find true love and friendship?
On Sunday, May 21, 2017 at 8:30pm ET/PT, FOX premiered the series finale of MAKING HISTORY, with guest star Ben Vereen. In the series ender, "Body Trouble," Chris' life is in shambles, so Dan plays the time travel card with Dr. Cobell (guest star Ben Vereen) to help get Chris' job back, but his efforts go awry when he accidentally gives him a heart attack instead. Meanwhile, Deb hunts down Hancock and Adams to convince them to return to the past.
