Time To Time

The high concept drama Time To Time is about two star-crossed police
officers, separated by 27 years in time, who work together to solve
murders.
Huh? "Star-crossed" is an adjective used for lovers who are doomed never to be together. Hard to see how that fits the described premise. I guess they're connected by some kind of mental link, so maybe that's how they "meet" and fall in love.

Anyway, it reminds me of Awake in terms of the police investigations crossing between two time frames. It should be much easier for the future person to solve the past person's cases, though, since he or she could just look in an old newspaper and see who was finally found guilty. Although I guess it'd mainly be unsolved cold cases, that sort of thing.

(And yes, the headline does say "multiple timelines," but sometimes laypeople use that to mean just different time periods rather than alternate universes.)
