Frequency Casts Supernatural Vet as Imprisoned 'Wily Trickster'

15 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Supernatural angel is taking on a tricky new role.

Curtis Armstrong, who recurred as the celestial being Metatron on the long-running CW series, will guest-star on Frequency, the new CW drama from former Supernatural showrunner Jeremy Carver, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Armstrong will play Karl Pierce, a manipulative and charming former quantum physics professor who’s gone to the dark side. He is described as a wily trickster — but not The Trickster, Supe fans! — who likely went over the edge long ago, but instead wears the mask of an erratic genius. While in prison for murdering his neighbor, »

In Defense of the Reboot: How Remakes Can Still Result in Great TV

8 September 2016 3:55 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s not just a cliche: Everything old is indeed new again on TV, particularly this upcoming season.

Fox is leading the drive, with three upcoming shows based on existing titles: “The Exorcist,” a new take on an old horror franchise; “Lethal Weapon,” a remake of the 1980s buddy comedy, and “Prison Break,” which is a continuation of that original series (expected in early 2017). CBS is also on the bandwagon, with new takes on “MacGyver” and “Training Day.”

The networks went through a similar exercise last year, and the results were mixed. At Fox, “Minority Report” was a dud, but the return of “The X-Files” was a massive ratings hit. CBS’ “Rush Hour” was a miss, but a new version of “The Odd Couple” is picking up steam.

Just as sequel and franchise mania envelops the film biz, it’s easy to knock TV for its constant desire to ride the wayback machine. »

Past Meets Present in new promo for the Frequency TV series

6 September 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With a month to go until its season premiere, a new promo has arrived online for The CW’s  upcoming drama Frequency entitled ‘Past Meets Present’.  A re-imagining of the 2000 sci-fi thriller of the same name, the series stars Peyton List, Riley Smith, Mekhi Phifer, Anthony Ruivivar, Lenny Jacobson, Devin Kelley and Daniel Bonjour; watch it below after the official synopsis…

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 »

20 new fall TV shows to get excited about

30 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Once upon a time, conventional wisdom in TV suggested that any shows debuting outside of the fall were in some way lesser than the ones launching in September and October. Thanks to cable, streaming, and even a transformation of the way the broadcast networks schedule things, the roles have almost entirely reversed: now the really special stuff gets saved for January or later, while a lot of what's scheduled for a more traditional launch can be viewed as cannon fodder. This TV season, for instance, Fox is saving its revivals of 24 and Prison Break for 2017, and the CW is doing the same with its highest-profile new series, Riverdale. But there's still a lot of promising stuff coming this fall across broadcast, cable, and streaming — not just the welcome return of shows like Rectify, You're the Worst, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but a far more exciting batch of new series than were »

Is 16-Year-Old Film ‘Frequency’ Ripe For A TV Reboot? – TCA

11 August 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

When the 2000 New Line sci-fi dramatic feature Frequency was released, it wasn’t a mass-appealing success, opening third at the box office with $9M and legging out to $45M. The film starred Jim Caviezel as a grown man who communicates with his late father, a former fireman (Dennis Quaid), across 30 years via a ham radio and attempts to save dad’s life before he perishes in a warehouse fire.

27 July 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Frequency was a modestly successful movie in 2000. Jim Caviezel played a cop whose ham radio allowed him to talk with his father 30 years earlier. Now The CW has turned Frequency into a TV show and there are a few differences. Peyton List plays the cop, making it a father/daughter relationship. And now that she’s […]

‘Arrow’ Adds Artemis for Season 5 (Exclusive)

21 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

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 »

Upfronts Diary Day 4: Seen and Heard During TV’s Biggest Week

19 May 2016 3:35 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Variety’s TV team brings you all the news and dish from TV’s biggest week of the year.

The weeklong marathon of upfronts came to a close on Thursday — earlier in the day than usual this year. Thanks to the mega-presentation that NBCUniversal held on Monday, the usual Thursday afternoon trek to the Javits Center for NBC’s cable portion was eliminated, leaving the day solely to the CW. The morning kicked off with the genetically blessed carpet, followed by the CW’s presentation, bringing an end to the jam-packed four-day marathon.

Stay in-the-know with our daily Upfronts Diary, and keep refreshing the page for new updates throughout the day and night.

CW red carpet, London Hotel, Thursday morning

The big news on the CW carpet was that “Supergirl” is moving from CBS to the younger-skewing network, and star Melissa Benoist was gleeful to be with her new family, »

Time After Time: The Origin of Wells vs The Ripper

19 May 2016 3:24 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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 »

'The CW' Lists Fall 2016 Schedule: 'Supergirl' Arrives, 'Supernatural' Moves

19 May 2016 6:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

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.

The president of The CW, Mark Pedowitz, issued a statement with the schedule release:

"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, »

CW Fall Schedule: ‘Supergirl’ Lands on Monday, ‘No Tomorrow’ Grabs Post-‘Flash’ Slot

19 May 2016 5:04 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

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, »
