tv The CW to remake UK '70s sci-fi 'The Tomorrow People'

The Tomorrow People is set to be remade by American network The CW.

The original show, conceived as ITV's answer to the BBC's Doctor Who, aired on the network for eight series between 1973 and 1979.

Now Deadline reports that producers Greg Berlanti and Julie Plec are looking to reboot the series for an American audience, written by Phil Klemmer (Chuck).

Berlanti and Plec are behind the top two shows on the network in Arrow and The Vampire Diaries respectively.

The Tomorrow People focused on a number of young people around the world who represent the next stage in human evolution and work together to defeat the forces of evil, in a story that has clear parallels with the likes of modern shows such as Misfits and Heroes.

This is the second attempt to reboot The Tomorrow People, after ITV re-launched the show with three new series in the early '90s.

Peyton List (Mad Men) has landed a lead in the CW drama pilot The Tomorrow People, an adaptation of the cult British series. Written/exec produced by Phil Klemmer, exec produced by Julie Plec and Greg Berlanti and directed/exec produced by Danny Cannon, Tomorrow People is in the vein of X-Men and Heroes and revolves around 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. List will play Cara, the female member of the ?Tomorrow People? group who has a sense of humor beneath her serious demeanor and seems to be a trustworthy ally. List, repped by Innovative, is probably best known for her recurring role as Jane Sterning on AMC?s Mad Men. She also co-starred on ABC?s FlashForward and recently recurred on the CW?s 90210.

Mark Pellegrino (Lost, Being Human USA, Supernatural, Grimm, Person Of Interest) is adding another telefantasy notch to his bed post (his bed must be in danger of falling apart by now). He?s been cast as the main villain in the CW?s remake of ?70s Brit cult hit The Tomorrow People. And his character has a very interesting name?

The Tomorrow People is being executive produced by Greg Berlanti (Arrow) and Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries) and is about a group of superpowered teenagers who can teleport at will and communicate telepathically among other things. Plec has previously stated that she?s a fan of the original series, and her fan credentials seem to be surfacing in the naming of Pellegrino?s character ? Dr Jedikiah Price.

Roger Price was the man who created The Tomorrow People back in the ?70s while Jedikiah was ?a fierce, shape-changing alien robot? who was a recurring enemy in the original show. Indeed, the first ever episode was called, ?The Slaves Of Jedikiah?.
