Resurrection alumna Devin Kelley is set for a lead role opposite Riley Smith and Peyton List in Frequency, the CW’s drama pilot based on Toby Emmerich’s 2000 sci-fi thriller.
The TV series, written by Supernatural showrunner Jeremy Carver, centers on Raimy (List), a police detective in 2016 who discovers that she is able to speak via a ham radio with her estranged father, Frank Sullivan (Smith), a detective who died in 1996. They forge a new relationship while working together on an unsolved murder case, but unintended consequences of the “butterfly effect” wreak havoc in the present day.
Kelley, repped by Door 24 and APA, will play Julie, Raimy’s mother, whose life may be tragically knocked for a loop when Raimy starts interfering with the past via her father’s old ham radio.
The CW’s Frequency, from WBTV and Lin Pictures, is executive produced by Carver, Emmerich, John Rickard, and Lin Pictures’ Dan Lin and Jennifer Gwartz.
