As reported by Deadline, Cara is described as "trustworthy" and in possession of a great sense of humor. It's unclear at this time just what her unique ability will be.

List has appeared on Mad Men, FlashForward and 90210.

Tomorrow People, meanwhile, is based on a popular British series and will receive strong consideration from The CW for a spot on the fall schedule.
