The CW Adds Julie Plec/Greg Berlanti Drama to Pilot Slate
Julie Plec may soon be the busiest woman in Hollywood.
Already in charge of The Vampire Diaries, and set to run The Vampire Diaries spinoff (assuming that goes to series), The CW now confirms that The Tomorrow People is in development, with Plec and Greg Berlanti (Arrow) set to executive produce.
The pilot - adapted from a 1970s UK series - tracks a group young people from around the globe who possess superhuman powers and are considered to be the next stage of our evolution. Think X-Men meets... all other shows on The CW aimed at a young demographic.
The network has also ordered the pilot for Blink, a dramedy that focuses on a father who is stuck in a coma-like state following a car crash, yet can see and hear everything around him.
These shows join a slate of other pilots from The CW, including another stab at The Hunger Games-like drama The Selection.
