Who's in it? Matt Davis as Jeff Sefton and Jessica Lucas as Skye Yarrow (inset), plus Robert Knepper as Billy Grimm/Roger Reeves (walking, from left) and Alona Tal as Kelly Collins/Marti. What it's about: Investigative journalist Jeff Sefton begins to take his conspiracy-theory obsessed brother more seriously when the brother--who believes life is imitating plot lines of a fictional, violent TV show about the battle of wits between charismatic cult leader Billy Grimm and LAPD detective Kelly Collins--goes missing. How long before I bail? This is the riskiest, most non-CW series on the CW slate, and for that I'm happy. I'm very intrigued by the idea of Davis, whom I loved in "The Vampire Diaries," matching wits with Knepper, who's can bring the complex baddie. Plus "Farscape" creator Rockne S. O'Bannon is an executive producer (along with "Chuck" co-boss Josh Schwartz and others) and he wrote the pilot. I'm likely in for the entire run of this midseason drama.
