Twice In a Lifetime (Series) (1999-2001)

Twice In a Lifetime
The inspiring and provocative series taps into the universal fantasy: to be given a second chance to fix an error of the past. Every episode features a guest star playing a flawed person who dies suddenly. Waiting for him on the other side are two celestial figures: a guide, Mr. Smith or Mr. Jones, and Judge Othniel. The person is given the chance to return to earth and to a time when he went astray. Guided by Mr.Smith or Mr. Jones, the character has three days to cajole his younger self to not make the same mistake. By changing history, he can alter the future and the course of other lives affected by him. It is not easy as it first appears because the character must overcome deep biases and character flaws. Mr. Smith, who doesn't remember his own life on earth and death, struggles to make sense of human nature and to unravel the mysteries of the Universe. But by guiding others, he hopes to earn his own second chance.
