OSCAR-NOMINEE KEISHA CASTLE-HUGHES, JENNIFER FERRIN, ROBBIE JONES AND KEON MOHAJERI SIGN ON TO SYFY'S TIME TRAVEL ACTION THRILLER "REWIND" FROM BERMANBRAUN AND UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS

DIRECTOR/ACTOR DAVID CRONENBERG AND JEFF FAHEY TO GUEST STAR IN PILOT

New York, NY - May 4, 2012 - Syfy has signed four actors - Keisha Castle-Hughes, Jennifer Ferrin, Robbie Jones and Keon Mohajeri - to join Shane McRae in the 90-minute pilot for the action thriller Rewind from BermanBraun and Universal Cable Productions. Additionally, noted director (Eastern Promises, The Fly, Dead Ringers,)/actor (Alias) David Cronenberg and Jeff Fahey (Lost) will guest star in the pilot. Jack Bender (Lost, Alphas) is set to direct the pilot penned by Justin Marks, who will also executive produce with Tom Spezialy, Gail Berman, Lloyd Braun and Gene Stein. Rewind has begun production in Toronto.

New Zealander Keisha Castle-Hughes received widespread acclaim and an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress for her performance in Whale Rider. She is the youngest person ever to be nominated for a Best Actress Oscar and only the second Polynesian actress to be nominated in the category. Hughes played the main role of the Virgin Mary in the film The Nativity Story. Her TV credits include a guest appearance on the syndicated series Legend of the Seeker. She is represented by Industry Entertainment.

Jennifer Ferrin is known for her work on such series as The Cape and Life on Mars, as well guest-starring roles on Royal Pains, The Good Wife, Unforgettable, Boardwalk Empire, Fringe, Law & Order: SVU, Rescue Me, White Collar and Nurse Jackie. Ferrin garnered two Daytime Emmy nominations for her work on As the World Turns. She made her Broadway debut in 2008 as a member of the original four-person cast of Alfred Hitchcock's The 39 Steps. She also appeared in Sex and the City 2. She is represented by the Gersh Agency and TMT Entertainment.

Sacramento native Robbie Jones starred as Lewis Flynn on Hellcats and he played Quentin Fields on One Tree Hill. He has guest-starred on Southland, Dark Blue and ER. His feature film credits include Hurricane Season and the upcoming Tyler Perry film The Marriage Counselor. He is represented by Untitled Entertainment, Van Johnson Company and the Gersh Agency.

Keon Mohajeri first made his mark in the film Circumstance, which screened at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival. Mohajeri is represented by Untitled Entertainment and the Gary Goddard Agency in Toronto.

Rewind revolves around 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.

Castle-Hughes will portray Priya, the team's atypical historian, a behavioral anthropologist who provides analytical context to the project and the missions, and whose knowledge of history extends beyond the boundaries of facts.

Bryce, a brilliant scientist who graduated from MIT when she was 18; the smartest person in the room who is obsessive, driven and doesn't really care what people think of her, will be played by Jennifer Ferrin.

Jones plays Danny, Henry Knox's (Shane McRae) friend and the man Knox trusts most to help him get the job done as they embark on their perilous mission into the past. As Charlie, Mohajeri portrays a mathematician who has patented an innovative piece of technology that can reduce history to mathematics, in order to measure the team's action in the past.

Guest star David Cronenberg will play a brilliant pillar of science and Nobel Prize winner who has become unhinged since the death of his wife years ago. He prepares a dangerous plot that will alter the course of history.

Guest star Jeff Fahey plays Ellis, a former NASA aerospace engineer and now part of Bryce's time travel team. He is the spiritual backbone of the team; strong with a Zen-like wisdom and intensely loyal to Bryce.

The previously announced Shane McRae will portray Sean Knox, ex-Special Forces who ranks as a field operative in a special division of the Department of Homeland Security. A self-aware, wry, clever and razor-sharp strategic mind, Knox likes to be underestimated. Now, Knox has been recruited for a nearly impossible top-secret mission: to travel back in time to prevent a devastating terrorist attack.
