The Show | The CW’s Frequency (Wednesdays at 9/8c, premiering Oct. 5)
Troubled teen Evelyn Sharp (Madison McLaughlin) will return to “Arrow” in Season 5, Variety has learned, and after her brief stint behind Black Canary’s mask last season, she’s definitely been bitten by the vigilante bug. Evelyn was last seen in episode 419, “Canary Cry,” when she impersonated the fallen Black Canary to seek revenge on Damien and Ruvé Darhk for the murder of her parents.
McLaughlin will be reprising her role as Evelyn for multiple episodes beginning in episode 502, and will be taking on a new DC Comics persona: Having tried to assume the mantle of Black Canary last season, Evelyn now aims to forge her own identity as the masked archer known as Artemis.
In the comics, Artemis was the daughter of villains Tigress and Sportsmaster, and a member of the Injustice Society, although the character was given a heroic twist in DC animated series “Young Justice,” where she became Green Arrow’s sidekick after Roy Harper »

The first trailer has arrived online for The CW’s upcoming drama series Frequency, which is based upon the 2000 feature film of the same name and stars Peyton List, Riley Smith, Mekhi Phifer, Anthony Ruivivar, Lenny Jacobson, Devin Kelley and Daniel Bonjour; check it out here…
Detective Raimy Sullivan (Peyton List) has always wanted to prove that she is nothing like her father. In 1996, when Raimy was eight years old, NYPD Officer Frank Sullivan (Riley Smith) left Raimy and her mother, Julie (Devin Kelley), behind when he went deep undercover, got corrupted, and got himself killed. Or so the story has always gone. Now, twenty years later, Raimy is stunned when a voice suddenly crackles through her father’s old, long-broken ham radio – it’s Frank, somehow transmitting over the airwaves and through the decades from 1996. They’re both shocked and confused, but Raimy shakes Frank to the core when »

Networks are continuing to announce their current fall line-ups of dramas and comedies! In addition to the two new shows below, the CW, CBS’ sister network, also announced it’d be picking up the sophomore season of “Supergirl.” Check out what else you can expect for the 2016–2017 season. “Frequency”Television is continuing to give women strong leading roles that traditionally belonged to men. This fall, the CW will premiere its adaptation of the 2000 film “Frequency.” Originally starring Jim Caviezel and Dennis Quaid, the film followed a son (Caviezel) who restarts his deceased father’s ham radio and finds he can communicate with him in the past—with disastrous results. The 2016 TV reboot follows the same “butterfly effect” premise with Peyton List (“Mad Men”) as the cop lead and Riley Smith (“Nashville”) as her father. The show will follow “Arrow” and air Wednesdays at 9 p.m. Et. Watch the trailer below! »

Tony Black on the original of Wells vs. The Ripper…
It’s been quite the week for time travel TV shows, as first NBC’s Timeless dropped a trailer (and if that show could have more cliches, I’d love to know how), the announcement that Jeremy Carver has jumped from the good ship Supernatural to head up a TV version of Dennis Quaid/Jim Caviezel 2000 thriller Frequency (I know, you’ve never heard of it, but don’t worry), and now the trailer for Time After Time has landed on ABC. Anyone who’s seen it will understand the concept is simply thus: Hg Wells actually invented that time machine he wrote about *in* The Time Machine and when it’s knicked by his mate, none other than the world’s most infamous serial killer Jack the Ripper, Wells must follow him forward in time to the present day »

You should know by now that I love time-travel stories, so it should come as no surprise that I like the 2000 film Frequency which starred Jim Caviezel as a guy whose radio allowed him to speak with his dead father (played by Dennis Quaid), “with their communication being the portal into a thriller plot involving a […]

In 1996, when Raimy was eight years old, NYPD Officer Frank Sullivan (Riley Smith) left Raimy and her mother, Julie (Devin Kelley), behind when he went deep undercover, got corrupted, and got himself killed.

The CW has a "super" new lineup for Fall 2016-2017, including the arrival of "Supergirl," which appears to be making a smooth transition from CBS on the same night and time, plus "Supernatural" moving once again for Season 12, this time back to Thursdays. The network really wants to keep fans on their toes with that show (which also has new showrunners). Whatever. Fans will follow it wherever it goes, even if it gets traded to CBS like a network fantasy league.
"We have four terrific additions to our schedule next season, and five great anchors at eight o'clock, every night of the week. [...] We are thrilled to have Supergirl on The CW this fall, joining our popular roster of DC heroes. Plus, we have three new series lined up for next season that perfectly fit our brand, »

“Supergirl” will land in its familiar Monday 8 p.m. time slot when the drama relocates from CBS to the CW in the fall.
The DC Comics superhero series will be paired on the night with the third season of CW’s “Jane the Virgin,” in what the network called the union of a woman with superpowers and an “everyday superwoman.” “We think ‘Supergirl’ will give a real boost to ‘Jane the Virgin,’ ” CW chief Mark Pedowitz said.
Meanwhile, new romantic comedy “No Tomorrow” lands the coveted Tuesday 9 p.m. slot behind CW’s highest-rated series, “The Flash.” Pedowitz said the offbeat show about a romance that blooms as the apocalypse draws near “shares with ‘The Flash’ a blue-sky optimism” that made it a good fit for the time slot.
CW has ordered four new dramas for the 2016-17 campaign (see listings below), with three settling onto the fall schedule. “Riverdale, »

Supergirl, meet Jane the Virgin. You're about to be spending a lot of time together in a new CW lineup that's more comic book-dependent than ever before.

Another new comic book property, Riverdale (based on Archie) will be at midseason, along with holdovers iZombie, The 100, The Originals, and Reign. The schedule, night-by-night: Monday: As mentioned, Supergirl at 8 (the same timeslot where it aired on CBS) and Jane at 9.

Set in the present day, the series is based on the well-known characters and locations of the Archie comics. Riverdale is described as “a surprising and subversive” representation of the characters and will delve into “the surrealism of small town life” and “the darkness and weirdness” – whatever that means – lurking beneath the surface of Riverdale.
The CW has also ordered No Tomorrow, a show about a straight-laced woman falling in love with a man who believes the apocalypse is coming, and Frequency, which is based on the somewhat forgotten Dennis Quaid thriller from 2000. In it, a police detective discovers she can speak to her dead father through a radio, and the two begin working together on a long-unsolved murder investigation. »

The CW has ordered three new series for the 2016-17 season, in addition to picking up “Supergirl” from CBS for Season 2 and renewing almost the entirety of their 2015-16 lineup.
“Riverdale” hails from Warner Bros. Television and “Supergirl” and “The Flash” executive producer Greg Berlanti’s Berlanti Productions. Set in the present day and based on the iconic Archie Comics characters, “Riverdale” is described as a surprising and subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica, and their friends, exploring the surrealism of small town life — the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome façade. Berlanti serves as exec producer alongside Sarah Schechter, Jon Goldwater and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who also penned the pilot, which was directed by Lee Toland Krieger.
The cast includes Lili Reinhart (“Surviving Jack”), Cole Sprouse (“The Suite Life of Zack and Cody”), Luke Perry (“Beverly Hills, 90210”, “Jesse Stone”), Kj Apa (“Shortland Street”) Marisol Nichols (“Gcb”), Mädchen Amick »

Demi Moore could be returning to TV for her first major role since “General Hospital” in the ’80s, as the actress is set to star in the drama “10 Days in the Valley,” which is being shopped around to networks. The series, first reported by Deadline, hails from “Rookie Blue” co-creator Tassie Cameron. The show from Skydance Television follows Jane Sadler (Moore), an overworked writer and single mother in the middle of a separation whose life is turned upside down when her 5-year-old daughter is taken from her bed in the middle of the night, forcing Jane to put everything on the line to get her child back, including her TV series, her loyalties and her own deep secrets. »

That’s according to Deadline, reporting that the casting of List for the sought-after role brings an end to an extensive search. Currently ordered to pilot at the network, The CW’s modern-day spinoff is based on Toby Emmerich’s cult sci-fi thriller, and is set to place List in the role of Raimy, a police detective who stumbles upon a means of contacting her absent father via ham radio (Riley Smith) – who was last seen more than two decades ago.
Penned by Supernatural showrunner Jeremy Carver, Frequency will explore their relationship twenty years on from his supposed disappearance, but as any sci-fi film outside of Back to the Future can attest, dabbling with the past often evokes big consequences for those in the present day. A brief logline reveals that the »
