The CW kept things simple on its midseason schedule, with new drama Cult filling the Tuesday 9 PM slot, which will become vacant after freshman Emily Owens, MD ends its 13-episode run. (The CW opted not to pick up additional episodes of the medical drama.) The network today announced that Cult will debut on February 19. The suspense drama will be an unlikely companion for soap Hart Of Dixie, which airs on the night at 8 PM as part of the network’s ‘doctor-doctor’ fall lineup. Cult centers on investigative journalist Jeff Sefton (Matt Davis), who teams with the young research assistant (Jessica Lucas) on a popular TV show when his younger brother Nate goes missing and the show’s gruesome plot twists begin to play out in the real world. The two race to save Nate and unravel the mystery behind the TV series whose hard-core fans would literally kill to see what happens next. Alona Tal and Robert Knepper co-star on the series from Fake Empire, Warner Bros TV and CBS Television Studios, with executive producers Rockne S. O’Bannon, Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage and Len Goldstein. Here is a trailer:
