Another new pilot in the sci-fi vein has been greenlit by The CW, and since this one comes from Julie Plec (“The Vampire Diaries”) and Greg Berlanti (“Arrow”), we thought it worth mentioning.
Per Deadline, Berlanti and Plec will executive produce “The Tomorrow People,” an adaptation of the cult British 1970s sci-fi series. It will be written/exec produced by Phil Klemmer (“Chuck”).
In the vein of X-Men and “Heroes,” “The Tomorrow People” is the story of several young people from around the world who represent the next stage in human evolution, possessing special powers, including the ability to teleport and communicate with each other telepathically. Together they work to defeat the forces of evil.
Created by Roger Price, “The Tomorrow People,” ITV’s answer to BBC’s “Doctor Who,” ran on the commercial broadcaster for eight seasons from 1973-1979. It developed a strong cult following and was a favorite of Berlanti and Plec, who are good friends from college.
