  1. I watched The Tomorrow People years ago…think it was suppose to be a young persons show…but I really enjoyed it…hope the new one does not mess around with the concept too much.

  2. That’s great news in a tough market to break into. He should have been in “Next Stop Hollywood”. We’ll have to wait to see if the pilot gets picked up. Arrow’s Stephen Amell’s cousin Robbie is also cast in this pilot so it could also be called The Beautiful People.
