by at . Comments

This is Julie Plec's world. The rest of us just live in it.

With The Vampire Diaries already on the air and The Originals picked up for the 2013-2014 schedule, The CW has now given the greenlight to The Tomorrow People, another project from this uber producer.

Adapted from a 1970s British series, the drama is akin to Heroes and Alphas, following around a group of gifted young people with unique powers. It will star Peyton List, Robbie Amell and Mark Pellegrino among others.

I'm glad for Star-crossed(previously Oxygen), Matt Lanter,VD's Malese Jow and Grey Damon. I never watched Aimee but let her surprise me.
The 100 and Tommorow People I don't know if Cw can pull it through.
Reign sounds interesting. But again can CW can pull it off???? CW should better market their shows. Arrow is doing great cause of the special focus the show got. Emily Owens failed cause of the lack of attention.
And maybe some great Guet starrings so some fans tune in.

Star-Crossed: Roswell anyone?

Star-crossed sounds a lot like Roswell to me.

"Star-Crossed" sounds suspiciously like a cheap copy of Jennifer L. Armentrout's Lux book series. I mean.. wasn't it formerly called "Oxygen"? Probably changed the title so that at least that doesn't sound like the books... as for the other two, they don't really sound that interesting to me. I'm not really into the whole dystopian/apocalyptic stories and I can only imagine what a CW take on European history will look like.. sorry, not the least bit excited.

oh, i get it! this is tween marketing people! 5 years ago it was vampire heartbrakes, now the trend is alien and post apocalyptic romances. Guess the circle's witches were too '90's to keep adolescent viewers interested. I hope the writing on these shows is good otherwise i'll only receive them as cheap marketing gimmicks.
