Original concept by Rebecca DePrisco, Christina Long, and Carlie Mantel
Zakk is an everyday 2033 kid who plays video games and rides skateboards - that is until one day when he comes across a strange device discarded in an alleyway dumpster. This mysterious mechanism whisks him away to the far-off year of 2233, where skateboards are hoverboards and video games are immersive virtual experiences. Zakk runs in to the creator of the time travel device, Professor Hadron, and his daughter Alexa. Not only is time travel technology illegal, it's also unstable. Hadron has no safe means to send Zakk back to his time, so now he must remain in 2233 while dodging the disgruntled police chief Timm Tempo, who is determined to prove he's from the past. Along the way Zakk, Alexa, and her childhood friend Adam, find themselves getting into wackier and wackier time-related misadventures and must avoid attracting Tempo's attention - and permanently damaging the time stream!
Zakk Tomorrow started out as an affectionate parody of cheesy 90's cartoons and would hope to remain as such, including the increasingly zany situations the characters get themselves into as well as the fantastical and idyllic view of the far future. In addition, Zakk Tomorrow includes issues that span over multiple episodes and plot threads that span throughout the series, including Timm Tempo's history with the Hadrons and the disappearance of Alexa's mother. Zakk Tomorrow is ultimately meant to be a fun, cartoony romp through history that includes just enough plot and intrigue to keep the show going.
