Hollywood Reporter reports that The CW television network has pulled the plug on the Amateur Radio-themed show “Frequency,” which stars Peyton List as young police detective and radio amateur Raimy Sullivan.
“Frequency was a combination of two of the season’s most popular trends: time travel and movie reboots,” Hollywood Reporter said, noting that the show had been averaging 1.5 million viewers.
As in the 2000 movie Frequency that inspired the TV show, Amateur Radio provides a means for the protagonist to reconnect over time with her late estranged father Frank Sullivan.
“Frequency” had joined ABC’s “Last Man Standing,” starring real-life radio amateur Tim Allen as Mike Baxter, KA0XTT, in providing Amateur Radio some small-screen exposure, albeit fictional. NBC had initially expressed interest in launching a “Frequency” TV reprise but ultimately passed on the idea.
