According to a news article released by Deadline Hollywood on October 25, 2013, an American remake of this series was put into development by ABC;[4][5] however, it was never produced.[6]

ConceptEdit

The science fiction / romance series is about a man who finds nine magical incense sticks that allow him to travel 20 years back in time. He attempts to keep his family safe in order to change the world he lives in today. However, this is not without consequences as his actions in the past affects the lives of many in the present, including his.[7]

As the show has a unique way of dealing with the concept of time travel, its ending is open to interpretation.[8]
