THE SKED 2013 UPFRONTS: CW Promo – “The Tomorrow People”


CW has released a mix of promos and short clips from its new series, which don’t do much more than provide the premises and a brief taste of the pilots.  Strong caution should be used in making any judgments from these, although we will anyway.  For THE TOMORROW PEOPLE, which will be paired with Arrow on Wednesday nights, we have a :30 promo and one action scene:

So our young X-Men-ian heroes can teleport and slow down time, and there are (government?) agents out to control and/or kill them.  Seems like pretty standard stuff.  With Greg Berlanti (Arrow) and Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries) behind the scenes, we can hope for more.  The show does seem to belong to the same hunky superhero family as Arrow, so the shows appear to be compatible enough.
