Frickin’Times is a time travel series without the time machine. Instead, present and future are connected by the twins Adam and Zoe. Both live in the same house but in different times — Zoe in the future and Adam in the present.
Everything starts as Adam discovers that he has a twin sister named Zoe, who is stuck in the future. Zoe needs Adam’s help to get back to the present. Unfortunately for Zoe, a dry do-gooder, the twins could not be more different.
Adam is a professional procrastinator. The future hangs in the balance, constantly shifting, and mostly due to Adam’s missteps in the present. Luckily, help is at hand in the form of two unlikely companions: a vacuum-cleaner-robot with ambitions to become human, and a genius but shifty hamster who can travel through a tiny time portal. In each episode, Zoe attempts to get back home to the present day. If only the future would not change all along and her brother Adam would be less interested in living a cosy life than in supporting her.
In Frickin’Times, we want to tell the story of twins who have to deal with their lives in different ways. Zoe, who gets lost in the future, has to deal with an uncertain world that she cannot control. Adam is lost in the present and does not know how to cope with the daily life and how to take responsibility.
Our goal is to create a world in which all the possibilities of the future can be experienced simultaneously, and we want to show the consequences of every decision made today. We want to show how the twins deal with everyday problems that usually turn into bizarre situations in the future.
Visually, we want to connect the two times in each episode through a split screen and jump back or forward through time-lapse sequences.
Frickin'Times is a series about crazy time-travel adventures, but also about a split family, loneliness, fear of the future and expectations in life. Throughout the show, references from pop culture provide satirical commentary on larger social issues.
