Pilot News: Seeker Star Is The CW's Joey Dakota

The CW’s Joey Dakota pilot has found its hard-rockin’ Joey Dakota, in Aussie actor/Legend of the Seeker alum Craig Horner, our sister site Deadline reports.

In an adaptation of the Israeli series Danny Hollywood, Greek‘s Amber Stevens plays Maya, a filmmaker working on a docu about Joey Dakota, a rock star who died too young in the 1990s. When Maya (somehow) travels back in time, she meets and falls in love with the musician, only to be thrust back to the present. She then labors to get back to the ’90s to help Joey dodge death — Butterfly Effect be damned!
