Pilot Scoop: CW Orders Adaptation of Tomorrow People; Wonder Woman Origin Tale Still MIA
The Tomorrow People, adapted from the 1970s UK series, follows several young people from around the world who represent the next stage in human evolution, all possessing special powers including the ability to teleport and communicate with each other telepathically. Together they work to
score above a 3.5 demo rating defeat the forces of evil. Greg Berlanti (Arrow) and Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries) will executive-produce along with writer Phil Klemmer (Chuck).
Also in the pipeline at The CW is Blink, which is described as a “warm, quirky, humorous drama” about a dad who lands in a coma-like state after a car accident, but can still see and hear all. Narration and fantasy sequences emanating from his mind provide context and a wry counterpoint to the stories and conflicts of the family and his own situation. David Marshall Grant (Brothers & Sisters), Sarah Timberman (Justified) and Carl Beverly (Justified) will serve as EPs; Vera Herbert (Awkward) will pen the pilot.
UPDATE: As for the aformentioned Amazon, while our sister site Deadline reports that the pilot about a young Wonder Woman/Diana has been “rolled” to next season, sources clarify for TVLine that the final script for the superhero project simply has yet to come in. As such, it technically still is a contender for the fall or midseason 2013-14.
Previously this pilot season, The CW ordered the apocalyptic saga The Hundred, the alien drama Oxygen and the period drama Reign, plus a retooling of The Selection and a military drama from ex-Supernatural boss Sera Gamble.
