Pilot Castings: Scott Wolf Travels to Joey Dakota, Scott Bakula Joins Table for Three and More!

Scott WolfScott Wolf is time-traveling to The CW’s drama pilot Joey Dakota.

Also among the latest pilot castings: Chuck‘s dad joins a new family, a NYPD Blue star becomes a CIA operative, an Old Christine alum finds an Asset and more.

Dakota, a musical romance based on the Israeli format Danny Hollywood, features Amber Stevens (Greek) as Maya, a filmmaker making a documentary about rock star Joey Dakota (Legend of the Seeker‘s Craig Horner), who died in the 1990s. Maya miraculously travels back in time and falls in love with the musician only to be thrown back to the present day. She then struggles to find a way back to her love and to prevent his death.

Wolf — who starred on V, Everwood and Party of Five — provides a possible solution to Maya’s problem as a mysterious man who seems to know a lot about her situation and may have even done some time traveling himself.

    Having never seen the Israeli origina, I wonder if Dakota uses the Somewhere in Time method of time travel.

  2. Robin Sloan says:

    It was so upsetting when Men of a Certain Age was canceled, so it’s wonderful to see that Scott Bakula has a pilot!!

  3. Carmichael says:

    Wait wait wait Nicky Whelan is playing the fiancee on Table for Three? Is it too much to hope for that she keeps her Aussie accent? Regardless, between her and Papa Bartowski, I’m there.

  4. Allie says:

    Scott Wolf is a great addition to Joey Dakota.. It has a great cast, especially Craig Horner, he was amazing in Legend of the Seeker.. looking forward to watching him in this.

  5. Sarah says:

    Well at least Joey Dakota has lots of pretty people on it. Sadly, still won’t make me watch. I’m rather disappointed in 99% of the upcoming pilot season.

  6. Zachary says:

    And Scott Wolf was on NCIS as well.

  7. Lisa London says:

    You had me at “J.J. Abrams/Eric Kripke drama”. The minds of fanboys and fangirls everywhere were just blown, mine included. I can’t believe I’d never heard of this project before!

  8. Need Elizabeth Mitchell in a new show!
