Watch the First Trailer for The CW's Frequency TV Show
We were dubious of a remake of the 2000 Jim Caviezel/Dennis Quaid movie, Frequency, but the first trailer is here, and it actually looks pretty good:



The series stars The Flash's Peyton List as Raimy Sullivan, a detective who discovers she can speak to her deceased father over a radio (why she's still using a radio in 2016 is unclear, but we'll blow past that). She ends up preventing his death, and butterfly effect hijinks ensue, leading her to enlist his help on a murder case.

From the trailer, it seems to pretty much follow the exact same plotline as the film, except with a gender-swapped lead (which is great), and it seems decent, if sometimes a little silly. I would also hope that it has a more sustainable premise, although it seems like a bad idea to make this into a full-blown procedural, as that could get tired very quickly. But, The CW has been on a roll lately, so we'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

Frequency will air this fall at 9pm on Wednesdays, right after Arrow.
