A TV series about a New York police detective (Peyton List, Mad Men) who discovers that, via a ham radio signal, she is able to reach a signal 20 years in the past and communicate with her father (Riley Smith, Nashville), also a police detective who died in 1996. Using the radio to keep in touch, she uses her knowledge of the future to help her father solve crimes, including his own murder. Also stars Mekhi Phifer (8 Mile).
And the remake machine rolls right along. As you’ve probably guessed, this new TV series is adapted from the 2000 film of the same name starring Jim Caviezel and Dennis Quaid. It’s definitely a premise that can exploited for some interesting dramatic material that the (excellent) film only touched on, but whether it will be done effectively remains to be seen. It’s being produced and co-written by Jeremy Carver, who gave us Supernatural and the surprisingly good remake of Being Human, so hopefully this will be more than just an unnecessary retread.
