REWIND (Syfy) - Keisha Castle-Hughes, Jennifer Ferrin, Robbie Jones and Keon Mohajeri have all been cast in the two-hour drama pilot, about "a team of military field operatives and civilian scientists who must use untested technology to travel back in time to alter past events in order to change the future and avoid a devastating terrorist attack." Shane stars as Henry Knox, ex-Special Forces who ranks as a field operative in a special division of the Department of Homeland Security. Castle-Hughes then will play Priya, "the team's a-typical historian, a behavioral anthropologist who provides analytical context to the project and the missions"; with Ferrin as Bryce, "a brilliant scientist who graduated MIT when she was 18"; Jones, as Danny, "the man Knox trusts most to help him get the job done as they embark on their perilous mission into the past"; and Mohajeri as Charlie, "a mathematician who has patented an innovative piece of technology that can reduce history to mathematics, in order to measure the team's actions in the past." Jack Bender is helming the Universal Cable Productions-based project from a script by Justin Marks. Tom Spezialy, Gail Berman, Lloyd Braun and Gene Stein also serve as executive producers.
