NBC’s Timeless, the Hindenburg Disaster, and Kate Drummond

The new NBC time travel show Timeless, premiering October 3, features a trip back in time to save Hindenburg from destruction.

There are some reasonably good CGI images of Hindenburg’s exterior (and some mostly silly sets depicting the airship’s interior).

For those who want to know, “Kate Drummond” is a fictional character created for the show, perhaps very loosely inspired by Lady Grace Drummond Hay, a reporter for the Hearst newspaper chain.

As soon as I saw an ad for this show on TV that showed the Hindenburg, my reaction to NBC was… “You have my attention.”

I’m glad to see a TV series depicting the Hindenburg disaster in an accurate way since the ’75 movie, but I don’t think I’m going to happy seeing it filmed in British Columbia instead of Lakehurst, New Jersey.
