Former Dawson’s Creek writers Greg Berlanti and Julie Plec are teaming up to reboot the classic U.K. series The Tomorrow People.
The pilot will be produced for the CW, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The Tomorrow People was created by Roger Price and tells the story of young people around the world who represent the next stage in human evolution who possess special powers, including the ability to teleport and communicate with one another telepathically. Together, they work to defeat the forces of evil.
The original series ran from 1973-79 on ITV with Price producing a revival in for Tetra Films and Reeves Entertainment that ran on Nickelodeon between 1992 and 1995. A third version ran between 2001 and 2007 as a series of audio plays for Big Finish Productions.
Berlanti, whose freshman drama Arrow received a full-season order at the CW earlier this fall, will executive produce alongside The Vampire Diaries co-showrunner Plec.
Phil Klemmer is writing the pilot script.
