Peyton List Frequency

CW Pilot News: Peyton List Joins Frequency, Transylvania Finds Lead

Peyton List (The Flash, The Tomorrow People) has found the right Frequency.

The actress will star opposite Riley Smith (Nashville) in the network’s drama pilot reboot of the 2000 Jim Caviezel-Dennis Quaid film, our sister site Deadline reports.

The potential series follows a female police detective (List) who discovers she is able to speak via ham radio with her estranged father (Smith) — who died 20 years prior and also was a detective. As they forge a new relationship while working together on an unresolved murder case, unintended consequences of the “butterfly effect” wreak havoc in the present day.

Supernatural showrunner Jeremy Carver penned the pilot and will serve as an executive producer.

Laura Brent Transylvania CastIn other CW pilot news/father-daughter stories, Aussie actress Laura Brent (Legend of the Seeker) has been cast in the 1880-set drama Transylvania, per Deadline.

Brent will play a woman in search of her missing dad who ventures from New York City to Transylvania, where she teams up with a wrongfully disgraced Scotland Yard Detective. Together, they witness the births of the most famous monsters and villains in history.

Does List’s casting make you more likely to tune into Frequency? Sound off below!

    List is a winner for any show, let alone Frequency. I just wish they’d made a better decision than Smith.

    Interesting premise for ‘Frequency.’ I wish Peyton List and the show a long run.

    I will check this out for peyton list. Happy and sad though, cause I want to see her on flash more, but she has a lead role for this (This lead is better for her career, but still :( )

    List and Smith?? I guess they don’t want a series pick up.

    Enought with the sci-fi series… The CW needs more ‘normal’ people shows.

  6. The show won’t be as great as the movie, which I love. But I can see this being an entertaining show. Looking forward to it.
