'Cult' to premiere Feb. 19 on The CW
The creepy, show-within-a-show suspense thriller will replace Emily Owens, M.D. , in the Tuesday 9 p.m. time slot. The CW recently announced that the freshman medical dramedy starring Mamie Gummer would end after its 13th episode.
"Cult" stars Matt Davis ("The Vampire Diaries") as Jeff Sefton, a reporter investigating the mysterious disappearance of his brother, one of many obsessive fans of the interactive TV series "Cult." It's very dark and very meta, with many tongue-in-cheek references to the, um, devoted fans of other CW series. "Cult's" fans, however, take their devotion to deadly extremes.
Sefton partners up with the show's research assistant, Skye Yarrow ( Jessica Lucas), to delve into the dark underworld of "Cult." Also starring are Robert Knepper ("Prison Break") as fictional cult leader Billy Grimm/actor Roger Reeves and Alona Tal ("Supernatural") as fictional LAPD detective and former cult member Kelly Collins/actress Marti.
"Cult" debuts Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 9 p.m. on The CW. Will you be watching?
