Riley has just signed on to a recurring role on The CW’s new show “The Messengers”. It’s scheduled to premiere early next year and films in New Mexico. “The Messengers” starts with a mysterious object crashing down to earth. A group of seemingly unconnected strangers die from the energy pulse, but then awaken to learn that they have been deemed responsible for preventing the impending Apocalypse.

UPDATE: Riley’s character named Mark Plowman is described as “a quiet, salt of the earth type of man you’d expect to find walking the fields, not sitting in the boardroom of a powerful farming business. But as a family man, his heart is usually in the right place—especially when it comes to pioneering new ways to feed the world. But the shadow cast by his charismatic and outgoing younger brother has planted some deep resentment along the way that may destroy a lot more than the next harvest. – EW

Best-selling author Nicholas Sparks (“The Notebook,” “A Walk to Remember,” “Safe Haven”) made his television debut as executive producer of the two-hour programming event “Deliverance Creek.”

“Deliverance Creek” is a revenge drama centering on a widow and mother of three who is determined to protect her family and land at any cost during the Civil War.

I’m sure everyone who was able to see it was feeling with “Belle” the hard work, the spark with her secret lover, the sadness, the anger, the determination and is very curious how things go on! Now that we saw the beginning, we need to see how it continues!

Lifetime we need Deliverance Creek as a TV series!
