Making History

If Drunk History were a little more drunk and included a lot more gym bags, it might look something like Making History

Fox's newest time travel show is very different from the rest of TV's time travel shows, which often aim to both inform and make history a little sexier. Making History does not make history sexier, but it does make it funnier, like in this exclusive clip which finds Dan (Adam Pally) introducing his friend Chris (Yassir Lester) to his other pals, John Hancock and Sam Adams. 

When the Sam Adams (Neil Casey) offers to let Chris try his new beer, he obviously says yes and excitedly takes a swig. Unfortunately, he learns the hard way that just because a dude might be a founding father, that doesn't mean you can trust him when he hands you a beverage.

Making History follows Dan as he travels through time in his time traveling gym bag, usually to the 1700s where everyone thinks he's cool and funny and will accept ham as a trade. That's also when he happens to be dating Deborah (Leighton Meester), the daughter of Paul Revere. 

When Dan and Deborah's relationship accidentally messes up the thing that Paul Revere is most known for and history gets all screwed up, Dan enlists history professor Chris to help him fix it.

It's definitely not the type of time travel show you're used to, but it might just be the time travel show we all need right now. 

Making History premieres Sunday at 8:30 p.m. on Fox.
