In this visceral thriller created by Rockne S. O’Bannon, Jeff Sefton, a bright, driven and intuitive reporter, teams up with Skye Yarrow, an inquisitive television researcher, to investigate a series of disturbing disappearances all tied to a wildly popular new television show called Cult. With everyone a suspect and no one to trust but each other, Jeff and Skye follow an obscure trail of tantalizing clues deeper into the cult of Cult in an effort to find Jeff’s missing brother, a rabid fan of the show who unlocked the secret at the heart of the series … and seemingly paid the price. Moving from the real world into the world of the labyrinthine series and its two characters — LAPD detective Kelly Collins and charismatic cult leader Billy Grimm — events inside the show begin to bleed into the outside world and vice versa as the young couple’s certainty of what’s real and what’s illusion crumbles into dust. Hypnotic, shocking and disturbingly unpredictable, the multilayered worlds of CULT watches fans watching Cult … without realizing that Cult is watching them.
Starring Matt Davis (The Vampire Diaries), Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield, The Evil Dead), Alona Tal (Supernatural, The Killing) and Robert Knepper (Prison Break), CULT is from Fake Empire and Rockne S. O’Bannon Television in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios, with executive producers Rockne S. O’Bannon (Farscape, V), Josh Schwartz (Chuck, Gossip Girl), Stephanie Savage (Hart of Dixie, Gossip Girl) and Len Goldstein (Hart of Dixie). Premiering on February 19, 2013, the series airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on The CW.
