Cast Set for Sullivan’s Crossing Adaptation


Morgan Kohan (Transplant), Chad Michael Murray (One Tree Hill) and Scott Patterson (Gilmore Girls) are set to star in the upcoming Sullivan’s Crossing adaptation from CTV, Fremantle and Reel World Management.

Based on Robyn Carr’s best-selling books, the series sees neurosurgeon Maggie Sullivan (Kohan) leave her life in the city after a scandalous incident and return home to her estranged father (Patterson) at Sullivan’s Crossing, a rural campground and outpost.

The cast also includes Tom Jackson (Cardinal), Andrea Menard (The Velvet Devil), Lynda Boyd (Virgin River), Allan Hawco (Jack Ryan) and Amalia Williamson (Northern Rescue).

Sullivan’s Crossing is executive produced by Reel World Management in association with CTV and Fremantle. It is an interprovincial co-production with Nova Scotia-based producer Mike Volpe and Ontario-based producer Mark Gingras producing. Fremantle will also handle global distribution.

Roma Roth will showrun as well as executive producer, alongside Fremantle’s Michela Di Mondo, executive VP of distribution and sales for Canada, and Hilary Martin, executive producer of global drama.

“We cannot wait to bring this honest and powerful adaptation to life alongside our fantastic producing partners, Reel World Management and Fremantle,” said Justin Stockman, VP of content development and programming at Bell Media. “Led by a star-studded cast, we know viewers will fall in love with the story and characters, and make Sullivan’s Crossing a must-watch series.”

“I’m excited to once again be working with author Robyn Carr to develop an emotionally compelling series that will resonate with her dedicated global fan base,” Roth said.

Di Mondo added, “At Fremantle, we are always looking for strong IP and authentic stories that speak to audiences around the world. We are extremely excited to be partnering with CTV and Reel World Management to bring Robyn Carr’s iconic book series to the international market.”
