FREQUENCY Preview: First Look at The CW’s New Police Drama With a Twist

Detective Raimy Sullivan (Peyton List) wants people to know she’s nothing like her father when FREQUENCY begins. Back when Raimy was eight years old, her father, NYPD Officer Frank Sullivan (Riley Smith) left Raimy and her mother, Julie (Devin Kelley), and went deep undercover. Frank was corrupted and killed as a result of the operation. At least, that’s what everyone believes, because no one really knows about the secret undercover sting operation Frank was tasked 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 wants her to let go of the anger she feels about her father’s death. But Raimy can barely bring herself to discuss Frank, even with her boyfriend, Daniel (Daniel Bonjour), or her childhood friend, Gordo (Lenny Jacobson).

Twenty years later, Raimy can’t believe it 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. After getting over the shock, 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.
