Travelers is a series written by Canadian writer/producer Brad Wright. Brad is best known for his work on Stargate SG-1, Stargate: Atlantis and Stargate Universe.

Travelers is the latest to use downtown Vancouver’s former Canada Post facility as a “popup studio” – they’ve been seen setting up there for the past few weeks. The building is also occupied by Syfy’s new series Van Helsing.
