Get More: Casting News, Pilots

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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!
