Press | Video: Peyton List Says Her ‘Frequency’ Character Is An ‘Over-Achiever’

Peyton List returns to television this fall as the star of the new CW series Frequency. Inspired by the 2000 film of the same name, the CW’s latest sci-fi endeavor centers on Raimy Sullivan (List), a detective who discovers that she’s able to communicate through a ham radio with her father, Frank Sullivan, a detective who died in 1996. The two forge a new connection by working together to help solve an unresolved murder case.

The former Tomorrow People star provided People’s Choice with a bit of insight into the mind of her character when we caught up with her earlier this year at the CW Upfronts.

“My character is a police detective, and she’s someone who’s pretty serious,” List told People’s Choice. “She grew up always over-achieving and trying to clean this stain that had been left by her father, who had basically died being a bad guy and being a criminal. And in becoming a police officer, she’s always trying to prove she can be better than him, and she can sort of redeem the family name, or prove that it didn’t carry on to her.”

Once List’s character begins communicating with her father back in 1996, the two discover that altering the past can have monumental effects on the future.

“She’s starting to ask questions like, ‘Was he a bad guy? Was everything she told real?,”‘ List continued. “It’s dictated her life since she was eight-years-old and all of a sudden, if it is true, how does that change her life going forward?”

Press | News: How Will ‘Frequency’ The TV Show Be Different From The Movie Of The Same Name? Star Riley Smith Explains.

If there’s one television trend that seems here to stay, it’s adapting TV shows from popular movies. We’ve already seen it with CBS’ Limitless, A&E’s Bates Motel and SyFy’s 12 Monkeys, and now The CW is also getting in on the game: The CW just released a “first look” preview for Frequency, a new series based on the 2000 Dennis Quaid movie of the same name. The sci-fi flick is a twist on a classic time travel story: a man named John discovers that he can communicate with his late father Frank across time via a ham radio, and in doing so, alter the past and present. John is able to save his father — a firefighter — from dying on the job, which creates a new timeline with its own series of problems. So how will the Frequency TV show be different from the film? Bustle spoke to star Riley Smith at The CW Upfronts about how the series will diverge from the original film.

According to Smith, who stars on the series as the father character Frank, the show maintains a premise very similar to the original, but won’t have the exact same formula. One of the bigger differences is that the John character is played by a woman — Peyton List stars in the series as Raimy, Frank’s daughter. Smith told Bustle at the CW Upfronts:

[I]nstead of a son I have a daughter and that dynamic is always different than a father/son. And then the major difference is it’s a series, so it’s gonna be ongoing, we’re going to get to follow these characters longer, see where it would have went, could have gone. So there are differences, but the foundation is still the same.

Fans of the original film can look forward to seeing the unique device that propels the action of this time-changing mystery:

Well the HAM radio stuff is pretty much the same, in fact some of the scenes are literally almost the same dialogue. That was the most touching part for me in the movie, and it definitely was the most touching part to perform in the show.

It seems that the TV series is staying true to the heart of its source material, even though it will ultimately follow a different trajectory than the original film did.

News | Videos: Watch Trailers for New CW Fall Series ‘Frequency’

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. Few people knew about the secret undercover sting operation Frank was really charged with, led by Stan Moreno (Anthony Ruivivar), who has now risen to Deputy Chief of Police. Frank’s former partner, Lieutenant Satch Reyna (Mekhi Phifer), is now Raimy’s mentor and friend, and he has urged her to let go of the hurt and anger she still feels about Frank’s disappearance and death, but the old pain still lingers. Raimy can barely bring herself to discuss Frank, even with her devoted boyfriend, Daniel (Daniel Bonjour), or her childhood friend, Gordo (Lenny Jacobson). 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 she warns him that the secret sting he is undertaking will lead to his death. Armed with that knowledge, Frank survives the attempt on his life. But changing history has dramatically affected Raimy’s life in the present – and there have been tragic consequences. Separated by twenty years, father and daughter have reunited on a frequency only they can hear, but can they rewrite the story of their lives without risking everyone they love?

Frequency will be airing Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. after Arrow this fall.

New York detective Raimy Sullivan was only 7 when her father, Frank Sullivan, an undercover cop, abandoned his family in pursuit of a case that led not only to his family’s breakup, but also his eventual death undercover. Always believing her dad died in disgrace as a corrupt cop, Raimy set forth to surpass him in law enforcement, rising through the ranks to detective. But everything she knows changes when somehow Raimy and Frank connect — across two decades — over Frank’s vintage ham radio in the garage. Where once Frank was lost in the shadows of his undercover work in 1996, he has now miraculously been found by his now-grown daughter in 2016. As they forge a new relationship while working together in two time periods to close an unsolved serial murder investigation, their emotional connection transcends time to not only repair the broken bonds of their family, but also defy fate and change the course of destiny.

They forge a new relationship while working together on an unresolved murder case, but unintended consequences of the ‘butterfly effect’ wreak havoc in the present day.

News: Riley Smith To Star In the CW’s ‘Frequency’ Reboot

News: Riley Smith To Star In the CW’s ‘Frequency’ Reboot

Riley Smith (Nashville, True Detective) is set as the male lead in Frequency, the CW’s drama pilot based on Toby Emmerich’s sci-fi thriller. Smith will play Frank Sullivan, the character played by Dennis Quaid in the 2000 movie.

The TV series, written by Supernatural showrunner Jeremy Carver, centers on Raimy, a female police detective in 2016 who discovers that she is able to speak via a ham radio with her estranged father, Frank Sullivan (Smith), also a detective, who died in 1996.

Seen in 1996, Frank Sullivan has been undercover for two years. The strain of the assignment effectively destroyed his marriage and separated him from his little girl, Raimy, but he gets a new chance at building a relationship with her when she begins communicating with him from 20 years in the future. The two forge a new relationship while working together on an unresolved murder case, but unintended consequences of the ‘butterfly effect’ wreak havoc in the present day.

Emmerich’s feature took place in New York in 1999 and starred Jim Caviezel as homicide detective John Sullivan who strangely makes contact with his late father Frank Sullivan (Quaid) exactly 30 years in the past on the day before his death.

The CW’s Frequency, from WBTV and Lin Pictures, is executive produced by Carve, Emmerich, John Rickard, and Lin Pictures’ Dan Lin and Jennifer Gwartz.

This marks True Blood alum Smith’s return to the CW and WBTV where he recurred on the drama series The Messengers. Smith, who is coming off a major recurring role on ABC’s Nashville, is repped by Sanders.Armstrong.Caserta Management and Gersh.

News: ‘Flash’ Star Peyton List Radios in to Lead CW ‘Frequency’ Reboot

The wheel of movie-TV reboots remains forever in turn, but The CW’s take on time-twisting cop drama Frequency will have at least one familiar face for CW fans. Flash and Tomorrow People alum Peyton List will lead the new take from Supernatural boss Jeremy Carver.

This time taking place across a 20-year divide between 1996 and 2016, The CW’s Frequency reboot will see List as 2016 detective Raimy (via Deadline), who discovers an ability to speak to her estranged father Frank Sullivan (Riley Smith) over a ham radio before his death in 1996. The past Frank has been undercover for two years, the strain of his assignment tearing his family apart, as an unsolved case between the two timelines offers a new chance to mend their relationship.

Divergent series star Mekhi Phifer also stars as Lt. Satch DeLeon, ostensibly the past Andre Braugher role from the original Toby Emmerich film. That version saw Dennis Quaid and Jim Caviezel as the father and child pairing, albeit separated thirty years between 1999 and 1969, with Quaid’s character a firefighter to Caviezel’s detective..

Time will tell (get it?) if the new Frequency holds up as well as the film, but good on Peyton List for sticking with The CW. Watch the original Frequency trailer below.
