Christopher Lloyd, Cary Elwes Join BYUtv Family Drama ‘Granite Flats’

“Granite Flats,” the  family drama that airs on cabler BYUtv, is adding some high-profile thesps to its roster with Christopher Lloyd and Cary Elwes signing on for guest arcs.

The family drama is set in 1963 in Mountain West America during the Cold War. Lloyd (pictured) will be playing Professor Stanfield Hargraves, a smart and teasing English teacher in the fictional town of Granite Flats, Colorado. The show’s first season drew solid reviews and has helped raise the profile of BYUtv.

The general entertainment cabler is owned by a subsidiary of the Mormon church, but it focuses on family-friendly fare rather than overtly religious programming.

Lloyd is no stranger to TV from his stint on “Taxi” known for his roles in the “Back to the Future” trilogy, “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” and “Who Framed Roger Rabbit.”

“Princess Bride” star and “Psych” alum Elwes will appear in four episodes as the head of CIA’s counter intelligence program.

Ivan Sergei has signed on to play Roy Milligan and “General Hospital’s” Finola Hughes will play an Avon Lady who turns out to be a KGB spy.

The second season of “Granite Flats” bows April 6 on BYUtv.
