e4 [UK] E4 Misfits

280 posts in this topic

E4 has commissioned a new series about teenagers with superpowers.

Comedy drama Misfits follows a group of teens who get caught in a flashstorm while on community service and find themselves saddled with strange new powers.

Party-girl Alisha (Antonia Thomas) can send people into a sexual frenzy with just one touch, hard-as-nails Kelly (Lauren Socha) can suddenly hear people's thoughts, one-time sporting hero Curtis (Nathan Stewart Jarrett) discovers he has the ability to turn back time, and painfully shy nerd Simon (Iwan Rheon) can make himself invisible.

The only member of the ASBO gang who appears unaffected by the storm is smart aleck Nathan (Robert Sheehan).

Misfits is scheduled to air later this year on E4.

Sounds interesting.

The only member of the ASBO gang who appears unaffected by the storm is smart aleck Nathan (Robert Sheehan).

He'll obviously end up with Peter Petrelli type powers....

I'm guessing from the sound of things it's going to be pretty bad.

Misfits follows five outsiders on community service who get struck by a flash storm and lumbered with special powers.

Hard as nails Kelly (Lauren Socha) can suddenly hear people?s thoughts, shamed sporting hero Curtis (Nathan Stewart Jarrett) discovers he has the ability to turn back time when he regrets something, and party girl Alisha (Antonia Thomas) can send people into a sexual frenzy when they touch her skin. Even painfully shy Simon (Iwan Rheon) can make himself invisible when he feels he?s being ignored, which makes it all the more hard to swallow for smart aleck Nathan (Robert Sheehan), who seems to have been unaffected, much to his dismay.

Unlike their more conventional counterparts, our misfits don?t swap their ankle tags and mobile phones for capes and tights. Instead, they discover what a pain in the arse life can be when you?re stuck with a super power you didn?t want.
