"The Crossing": Asylum seekers from an AI-dominated future
ABC’s “The Crossing” started this evening, with a Pilot. Off the California coast, bodies start showing up, and some people survive. They claim they are refugees (or asylum seekers) from the future, where AI has taken over the world and decided who is fit to live. That’s after a war. They get put into detention at first.
Then we find out the refugees have “powers”, and that some of them are already here.They want to change the future as it is the past for them, and that always presents a problem of logic.
The series is created by Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin. Steve Zahn is the lead DHS ICE cop as the series starts.
Does this sound like “The 4400”? Maybe with a little of “The Event”.
