Welcome To 1946 Hollywood, CA

Book 1
In Episode 1 (the first book) Evan passes through a unique time warp wormhole that throws him back to 1946 Hollywood during the making of the movie “It's a Wonderful Life”.

After a period of extreme confusion as to how he went back in history, he ends up becoming friends with the film’s star, Jimmy Stewart, which leads to him working on the film as an assistant editor for Frank Capra.

Through this association, Evan helps save the film from getting bastardized by a greedy studio mogul and ensures that this timeless classic is made as it should be -- the movie we have come to know and love for over 70 years.

Evan meets a fellow time traveler, Dr. William Cooper aka- Coop, age 29, a brilliant scientist and time traveler who worked for Nikola Tesla and accidentally was propelled into 1946.

Coop recognizes Evan as a "fellow traveler" and gives Evan insight into how to navigate 1946.

Evan learns that he has been chosen to do what he did on his first journey and those in the future.

Evan senses that the "unseen hands" of destiny have decided that his missions are somehow related to a) Hollywood; and b) iconic films, movie stars and events germane to Hollywood history. Coop feels he is trapped - but sees in Evan a chance to escape 1946.

He becomes Evan's companion and together, they make a formidable team in their adventures through time.

"Since I was child, Frank Capra's It's A Wonderful Life has been watched every Christmas in my home. It is still a cherished tradition. I expect It's A Wonderful Time to be such a classic. It uses time travel to reexamine the post-war Capra film with today's eyes, and is written with lots of humor and charm. It's A Wonderful Time comes just in time — we all need to be reminded of both the progress and decline our society is going through."

— Robert Davi, Actor in Die Hard, License to Kill and The Goonies

In the first episode, Evan is thrust into a temporal vortex by crashing into a telephone pole. The time-door is opened and he’s deposited into the same spot, except in 1946 Hollywood. The time portal Evan travels through is intermittent and seemingly capricious - and the way back home is always in question.

Evan eventually learns that he has been chosen to do what he did on his first journey and those in the future.

In each new episode, Evan will need to find out who he is supposed to help - or which film needs his assistance. For example, what if Steven Spielberg’s “Jurassic Park” faces production problems with the dinosaurs?

Perhaps Cecil B. DeMille has a heart attack on the set of “The Ten Commandments” and Evan must help him resume work.

Perhaps Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott have a creative impasse on “Gladiator” and Evan and Coop have the challenge of ironing it out, and even Munchkin issues with Judy Garland on “The Wizard of Oz”. The list goes on.

 These are the continuous voyages of the Hollywood Time Traveler.
For Evan - to go where no young filmmaker has ever gone before!
