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

Peyton List Frequency

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.
