Odyssey 5 comes to mind. People mind-travelling back in time into their younger bodies to prevent the apocalypse.
Oh yeah, that's a good comparison. I'm sure it'll approach the premise differently, of course; there are always plenty of different ways to tell a similar basic story. It sounds like in this version, the time travel is less impromptu and the characters may have a better grasp of the circumstances leading to the doomsday scenario. But that's from a one-paragraph description, so it's hard to say. Plus it's only two characters as opposed to five, which would certainly make for a different dynamic. And it's described as "action-suspense" while Odyssey 5 was more of a drama.
