Horror on television has never been more popular, and if anyone knows this to be a complete and total fact, it’s The CW. Speaking of which, some quick casting news has come in for two of the network’s new pilots: “The Tomorrow People” and “The Hundred.”
Deadline reports that “Supernatural” alum Mark Pellegrino will co-star in “The Tomorrow People.” Written/exec produced by Phil Klemmer based on the cult British series, exec produced by Julie Plec and Greg Berlanti, and directed/exec produced by Danny Cannon, “The Tomorrow People” is about several young people from around the world who represent the next stage in human evolution and work together to defeat the forces of evil. Pellegrino will play Dr. Jedikiah Price, an evolutionary biologist committed to containing the threat posed by the “Tomorrow People,” whom he believes to be a grave danger to the human race.
The site also goes on to report that “Lost” alum Henry Ian Cusick has joined The CW pilot “The Hundred.” Based on the Alloy books by Kass Morgan, the Warner Bros. TV-produced “The Hundred” is set 97 years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization when the space station housing human survivors called the Ark sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth to investigate the possibility of re-colonizing the planet. Cusick will play Kane, an ambitious officer aboard the Ark who has his sights set on the Chancellor’s job.
Look for more on both shows soon.
