The Tomorrow People Trailer

Heroes on the CW

I remember this show, it was called Heroes. Wait... not it was a comic I read called The X-Men. The Tomorrow People has obviously borrowed a lot from both properties. What remains to be seen is it’s execution. Right not it looks like Twilight, The Mortal Instruments, and the Vampire Dairies. The Tomorrow People is not swaying this genre fan. Then again, I’m probably not their target audience. 

Synopsis: They are the next evolutionary leap of mankind, a generation of humans born with paranormal abilities — The Tomorrow People. Stephen Jameson stands at the crossroads between the world we know and the shifting world of the future. Up until a year ago, Stephen was a "normal" teenager — until he began hearing voices and teleporting in his sleep, never knowing where he might wake up. Now, Stephen's issues have gone far beyond the usual teenage angst, and he is beginning to question his sanity. In desperation, Stephen decides to listen to one of the voices in his head, and it leads him to his first encounter with The Tomorrow People — John, Cara and Russell — a genetically advanced race with the abilities of telekinesis, teleportation and telepathic communication. 

The Tomorrow People are being hunted down by a paramilitary group of scientists known as Ultra. Led by Dr. Jedikiah Price, Ultra sees The Tomorrow People as a very real existential threat from a rival species, and the outcast group has been forced to hide out in an abandoned subway station just beneath the surface of the human world. Trading in secrets, Jedikiah offers Stephen the chance for a normal life with his family and best friend, Astrid, if he will help in the struggle to isolate and eradicate The Tomorrow People. On the other hand, Cara, John and Russell offer Stephen a different type of family and a home where he truly belongs. Unwilling to turn his back on humanity or the world of The Tomorrow People, Stephen sets out on his own path — a journey that could take him into the shadowy past to uncover the truth about his father's mysterious disappearance, or into an unknown future with THE TOMORROW PEOPLE.

The pilot for the The Tomorrow People premieres October 9th, 2013.

Dr Jedikiah?

Huh???

Looks ok...way too many resemblance to that movie Jumper and Heroes and just doesn't seem that much interest for investment of time.

 No, Robert... this has NOT borrowed from "Heroes" (and not really "X-Men" either).

"The Tomorrow People" was a very popular British television show that I grew up watching as a kid. It first aired in 1973 and ran for about 10 years. It was revived in the early/mid-90s. This is a remake.

It was a very imaginative show. The name Jedikiah is a tip-of-the-hat to a recurring nemesis from the old show.

 Cool! They kept the old base in the subway station from the original show!

Looks good so far. I'll be watching.

I'll give it a looksee. Looks formulaic and cliche in ways, but might be interesting to check out.

Any comparison to Heroes is a death dagger to me. That show blew chunks. So much promise, but nonetheless, such a HUGE letdown.

 Did not know that mellodoux, I'd rather watch the original

 The original looks very dated now, Robert (British FX were, frankly, an abomination in the 70s). However, the stories had huge imagination and were thoroughly engaging. Most admirable was the fact that they didn't "talk down" to kids, and thus provoked a spooky atmosphere that left a lasting impression.

If you can hunt down the A&E dvds, I'd be interested in your opinion.

I remember watching the original The Tormorrow People after school on PBS as a kid.  It was one of the many foreign sci-fi programs which were brought to US televisions in the wake of Star Wars.  I don't remember much about it anymore.  The main thing I do recall is that mutants were incapable of killing.  It wasn't just about following the law, but a litteral thing they couldn't do.  Not even in self defense. 

I watched the first season I think, but then Star Blazers began to air on another channel in the same timeslot and it was much better than The Tomorrow People.

Damn, jonniej1017 beat me to it. The whole preview I was thinking "Jumper", then the "Push" stuff started happening. This honestly looks really good. Something I could get into. I loved "Jumper" despite a lot of others who didn't. I thought it was a great movie. Excellent concept.
