Sullivan’s Crossing, the CTV adaption of the novel of the same name by Robyn Carr has been acquired by US network The CW.
The series, still airing on CTV, follows Maggie Sullivan a young neurosurgeon who returns to her hometown after the fallout from a betrayal by her business partner. While home she tries to reconnect with her estranged father Sully.
Maggie rekindles old friendships and builds new ones with local residents, including a handsome newcomer named Cal Jones. As she works to clear her name, she must also confront her painful past.
Sullivan’s Crossing stars Morgan Kohan as Maggie, Scott Patterson as Sully Sullivan and Chad Michael Murray as Cal Jones. TV fans will recognise Morgan from Hallmark’s When Hope Calls, with Chad Michael Murray known to a generation for starring in One Tree Hill. Patterson is famous for his role in Gilmore Girls.
Robyn Carr had this to say about the adaption:
“It’s a pleasure to be working once again with executive producer and showrunner Roma Roth to bring yet another one of my novel series to life on the small screen”
Then went on to praise the casting choices, saying that Patterson was “the ideal actor to play Sully Sullivan” and describing Kohan and Murray as “the perfect fit as Maggie Sullivan and Cal Jones.”
Carr is also the author behind Virgin River and an executive producer on the fan favourite Netflix adaption. Sullivan’s Crossing and Virgin River share a number of similarities. Both leads come from a medical background and have to deal with a personal crisis.
