the sci-fi legal procedural CBS did back in 2005, "Century City". It survived for a handful of episodes.
I hadn't hear of it.
It is available though.
In June 2009 Hulu began offering all 9 episodes for online viewing, however they are cropped from their original widescreen presentations.
Here is the pilot.

interesting future from Wiki about the series
In the year 2030, the United States has 52 states and universal healthcare, Oprah Winfrey is the President of the United States (her Vice President is an openly gay, retired, one-armed, four-star U.S. armed forces general) and the Moon has been colonized.
i would not call this a time travel cop show at all though but it shows yet another procedural show with a scifi element on CBS...

Re: “Murmurs” Sci-Fi time-travel drama by CBS in development

He wasn't saying Century City was a time-travel cop show, he was saying it was an SF procedural show.

And yeah, it's pretty surprising to see CBS developing a genre show at all. Of all the major broadcast networks, CBS is the one that's had the lowest percentage of shows that were SF/fantasy-themed.

The original Star Trek consisted of stand-alone stories.

Wow, I hadn't known Century City was available on Hulu. I didn't think to look under "Drama" instead of SF. Thanks for letting us know.

Yeah, that's the one. I never bought the whole parallel universe thing for the reason you mentioned,
Isn't that premise similar to Michael Crichton's Timeline? A book which wasn't completely wrecked by the film (not that the book was especially good but even so).

The book wasn't wrecked by the film, because by the time he wrote Timeline he knew his books were becoming films, so the book reads like a film.
