Making History follows three friends from two different centuries as they try to balance the thrill of time travel with the mundane concerns of their present-day lives. Two shows in one, it's both a rollicking historical adventure, and a contemporary comedy about love, friendship and trying to fit in to an increasingly complex and impersonal world.DAN CHAMBERS, a computer science professor at a small Massachusetts college, recently discovered time travel and has been transporting himself back to the 1700s to spend time with the colonial woman he's fallen for. In the present, Dan is an unpopular nerd. But by claiming song lyrics, lines from movies and stand-up bits as his own in the 18th century, he's absolutely hilarious - he gets the girl and makes friends. But Dan's actions in the past are messing up the present. That woman he's dating is not just any woman. She's Paul Revere's daughter, DEBORAH, and Dan's meddling in the past causes her father to delay his famous ride, which may have altered the outcome of the entire American Revolution. To set matters right, Dan enlists the help of his colleague, CHRIS PARISH, a brilliant, polished and popular history professor, who's now given the incredible opportunity to actually live the history he teaches. Can Dan, Chris and Deborah save America as we know it? Can a woman from 1775 adapt to life in 2016? Can the three intrepid time travelers improve the past, help the helpless, fight for justice and get rich?
Deborah slowly discovers that Dan may not be the thrilling inventor he claimed to be back in 1776, and questions their budding relationship. To get her back, Dan resorts to desperate (and alarming) measures. Meanwhile, Chris is under intense scrutiny from his mentor, Dr. Cobell, as he works to finally achieve tenure at the university.
In need of a victory, the trio heads back to the 1990s to give Dan another shot at his childhood dream: finishing the infamous "Bellybuster" ice cream sundae at a local parlor. As Deb bonds with the parlor's owner, Chris is on a mission to save a life in honor of his late British friend. But all of their plans are derailed when Dan runs into the bully that tormented him.
In need of some quick cash for Deb to purchase an ice cream parlor, the trio decides to make some money rather than save the world. But after Chris devises a strategy to cash in on the fixed 1919 Chicago World Series baseball game, their get-rich-quick scheme is derailed when they run into the infamous mobster Al Capone.
Dan, Deb and Chris find themselves stuck in 1920s Chicago, with Al Capone holding their time travel bag hostage. Chris opts for a play-it-safe plan, using history to take out Capone, while Dan and Deb befriend him instead. As they teach him how to be a better mobster – and husband – they quickly realize that proving their loyalty may not be as easy as they thought.
With the ever-present threat of losing tenure looming over him, Chris reaches out to John Hancock and Samuel Adams to help spice things up in the classroom in 2017. Meanwhile, Deb's dream of re-opening Chadwick's ice cream parlor is finally coming to fruition, but Dan has a few marketing ideas of his own.
Just as they're heading back to colonial times, John Hancock and Sam Adams meet the woman of their dreams and decide that there's no better way to determine who gets to court her than a classic duel. In the meantime, in hopes of garnering good publicity for Chadwick's, Dan sets up a meeting with a local reporter, who winds up asking some challenging questions about Deborah's identity.
