Al And Sam’s Quantum Leap Trades ‘Bromance’ Reboot For A Romance

The new “Quantum Leap” premieres September 19 on NBC, and stars Raymond Lee as Dr. Ben Song, the lead physicist on the title project, who, like his predecessor, is hurt over and over while suffering from partial amnesia. The main difference here is that Ben’s Al, Addison Augustine (Caitlin Bassett), is more than his best friend. She is his lover.

This, obviously, adds a complicated new wrinkle to the series, while also increasing the stakes significantly. As Lee explained to TV Line, “Best buddy comedies are great, but why not watch a romance instead of a friendship? I think this is a great opportunity to dive into the different dynamics of these leaps and bounds. how it can feel, especially if there’s more at stake than just a friendship.” Gero added, “It’s just a really neat twist on what ends up being the worst long-distance relationship, like the time zone really differs in a way that I don’t think anyone has ever experienced. .”

Lee elaborated on this story twist in an interview with /Film, specifically about how the amnesia element complicates matters further. He also cites a comedy by Adam Sandler as inspiration.

“Like Dr. Sam Beckett, Ben Song has a memory of Swiss cheese, and he doesn’t remember the love of his life. When he starts to piece that together, he might die taking it with him. a completely different meaning, because he needed someone to come back. So it was a really fun dynamic to play. It was also really fun to do ’50 First Days’ basically. , so there are a lot of interesting themes that go well with having a romantic hologram partner.”
