The original British drama ran back in the 1970s, and aired on Nickelodeon in the 1980s-90s. It was like a teen version of Dr. Who. Daleks meets Dawson’s Creek, if you will. The show revolves around a group of teens who each had special powers. Together, they work to defeat the bad guys, as anyone without superpowers and a good heart does.
The re-boot will be headed by Greg Berlanti and Julie Plec. Berlanti is the über-producer who brought us Eli Stone, Everwood, and Arrow. Plec is best known for her work on The Vampire Diaries, but also worked with Berlanti on Dawson’s Creek.
Here’s a clip from the original version of The Tomorrow People.
