Written and executive produced by Todd, Salvage centers on ex-cop Jimmy Hill, who just wants to be left alone after moving back home to rural Florida. But when a local murder is linked to the sunken treasure of a lost Spanish galleon, he’s drawn into the investigation by an idealistic deputy and pitted against the powerful town patriarch, outside criminal agents and his own father.

Wakefield will play Gwen, the beautiful daughter of the town’s richest man, who arrives back in town newly unmarried and under mysterious circumstances.
