The two stars were joined by T.R. Knight and Josh Duhamel as they premiered the trailer for the upcoming show, which centers on a teacher who travels back in time to try to prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

“I wasn’t alive when it happened, but it’s a big event,” James shared on the panel. “It’s sort of become, in a weird way, legend for my generation where it feels like Marilyn Monroe or James Dean. But in fact it was this horrific event. I thought this story and approach was so great because it’s a fresh way in.”

He added, “We’re not exactly telling a history lesson … You get to learn everything all over again, but from a completely fresh perspective we haven’t really seen before. It’s a way to guide a new generation into what happened.”
