The CW Network’s pilot The Tomorrow People – a remake of the 70s classic BBC children’s show, presumably with an older tone – has signed a couple stars.
Robbie Amell (1600 Penn, True Jackson, V.P.) will take the lead role as Stephen, one of the “Tomorrow People”, a group of young people “who represent the next stage in human evolution and work together to defeat the forces of evil.” Mark Pellegrino (Being Human, Supernatural) will play Dr. Jedikiah Price, an evolutionary biologist determined to contain the “threat” posed by them.
In addition, Luke Mitchell (Home and Away) will play John Young, another of the Tomorrow People who can teleport and recruits others, while Peyton List (Mad Men) Cara, the (lone?) female of the group.
Greg Berlanti (Arrow) and Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries) will executive produce, with a script from Phil Klemmer (Chuck).
