The former "Heroes" star will collaborate with writer Alex Sabeti on
"The Correctors," a time-travel, Inception-esque project.

Masi Oka is teaming up with writer Alex Sabeti (Art of Cool) on an
Inception-esque pilot script for Syfy.

The Correctors follows two agents of the Exceptions Bureau who are
dispatched to a parallel universe where they inhabit the bodies of
their identical selves in order to stop events from occurring.

The time-travel elements and changing the course of history were key
in the plot of NBC’s now-defunct Heroes, where Oka played a Hiro
Nakamura, who could bend the space-time continuum.

Sabeti and Oka developed the story and Sabeti will write the script
with Masi attached to star and executive produce. Sabeti and Oka are
repped by UTA and The Collective, which will executive produce the
project along with its clients.
