'Tomorrow People' adds a new actress to cast


Actress Madeleine Mantock, best known for her appearance on British medical series Casualty, has joined the cast of The CW's upcoming drama pilot The Tomorrow People, which is being executive produced by Greg Berlanti and Julie Plec.

The series, an adaptation of the United Kingdom series of the same name, Tomorrow People focuses on several young people from around the Earth who are part of the next stage of human evolution. These dynamic individuals have special powers similar to what you would see in a comic book - teleportation, telepathy, etc. They use these powers for good, trying to defeat the bad boys.

Mantock has been cast as Astrid, a beautiful woman who is loyal to a fault and very cool. Astrid harbors a secret love for Stephen Jameson (played by Robbie Amell), who she has been friends with since they both were children. She tries to keep Stephen on the straight and narrow, which becomes difficult when he stops taking his medication. 

Also on board are Mark Pellegrino, Luke Mitchell and Mad Men's Peyton List.

The pilot is being written by Phil Klemmer, who will executive produce along with Berlanti, Plec and Danny Cannon. Cannon will also direct the pilot.

Sound interesting?

If they improve the plots and acting this could be very good. 'Arrow' is good good because they developed the character and his family. The show is multi-dimensonal. If they use this formula then Tomorrow People may have a future.

I remember watching a couple episodes of the Tomorrow People from the 1970's and they were pretty tame/bland. Definitely a kids show. I think Arrow has made it into the top tier in part because the CW was able to leverage the Green Arrow / Oliver Queen character recognition from the show Smallville. The Tomorrow People won't have the same name recognition advantage that Arrow had. Also, Arrow isn't targeted at the 8 - 13 year olds which is where the Tomorrow People show (at least the version from the 1970's) seemed to fit. Unless they are planning on revamping the story and focusing on an older audience (at least the 18 - 40'ish group) I wouldn't expect the same success from it as the CW is having with Arrow.
