|The Tomorrow People|
The Tomorrow People is an upcoming American science fiction television series created by Phil Klemmer that is expected to air on The CW Television Network during the 2013–14 American television season. Based on the two original British television series of the same name, the series follows a group of young people who possess powers as the result of human evolution. It will air on Wednesdays in the 9/8c timeslot following Arrow beginning in Fall 2013. On November 11th 2013 the show has been picked up for a full season .
The Tomorrow People are humans who, as a result of evolutionary development have become early instances of the next state of human evolution, homo superior. As a consequence of their "breaking out" of the limitations of their pre-telepath developmental phase in young adulthood, they develop psionic abilities, (the "three T's" of telepathy, teleportation, and telekinesis). The series focuses on Stephen Jameson, a newly-emergent member of the Tomorrow People, as was his father who, as the most powerful of the Tomorrow People, disappeared years before the current events in the series, trying to find a place where they could live safely. The Tomorrow People are hunted by Ultra, an anti-telepath genetic cleansing organization that uses Tomorrow People to hunt down others and neutralize, or kill, them; their headquarters are designed to neutralize the powers of Tomorrow People, although Stephen seems resistant to its effects. Outside Ultra, their parents and loved ones, the existence of the Tomorrow People is unknown to the general public, as they fear greater persecution. Consequently, they spend much of their time in the Lair, a subterranean base of operations beneath the streets of Manhattan.
