Tomorrow People confirmed...


Quote
Among the various pilot yeas-and-nays going around today, one pickup we were following was the remake of 1970s BBC SF show The Tomorrow People.

From Warner Bros TV, Berlanti TV and FremantleMedia, The Tomorrow People is the story of several young people from around the world who represent the next stage in human evolution, possessing special powers, including the ability to teleport and communicate with each other telepathically. Together they work to defeat the forces of evil. Based upon the original UK series created by Roger Price in the vein of X-Men and Heroes. Robbie Amell, Madeleine Mantock, Peyton List, Luke Mitchell, Mark Pellegrino, and Aaron Yoo star. Phil Klemmer is the writer and executive producer with Julie Plec, Greg Berlanti and Danny Cannon, who also directed the pilot. Melissa Kellner Berman is co-exec producer.

Terry Gilliam's 1995 feature 12 Monkeys is heading to the small screen. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the time travel tale is in development as a series with "Terra Nova" writers Travis Fickett and Terry Matalas attached to pen the pilot.

Inspired by Chris Marker's 1962 short film "La Jetée," 12 Monkeys begins in a post-apocalyptic future wherein a convict, James Cole (played by Bruce Willis in the 1995 film), volunteers to travel back in time in the hopes of learning how it came to be that the release of a deadly virus set the world down a path to its own near-destruction.

Chuck Roven and Richard Suckle, both of whom produced the original film, are attached to the series with a 90-minute pilot currently being planned. "24" helmet Jon Cassar is attached to direct.

The first book takes us right into the complete and total vampire apocalypse. The other two are PA. They're all terrible and dumb... But, then, so's Walking Dead.

Who wants to watch a show about Space Vampires? (Who may or may not be constantly naked this time?)

Deadline is repoting that Ringleader Studios has purchased rights to adapt Colin Wilson's 1976 novel The Space Vampires for television. Yes, the SAME story that was adapted into the 1985 flick Lifeforce. The series will also be titled Lifeforce and (because this is some weird, new rule all TV shows and movies have to abide by now) will come out with a companion graphic novel and video game.

It you're unfamiliar with the original film the plot is fairly simple: "A group of astronauts discover a derelict spaceship and return to Earth with three humanoid aliens that unleash a life-sucking plague upon humanity." Space Vampires, aw yeah.

AMC just greenlit this:

"Galyntine" takes place on a planet long after a technology-based disaster has made humanity reject technology, causing society to re-form in small tribes scattered across the face of the planet.

Very Leigh Brackett!

Took them a year to get us a second trailer. You'd think, with all that time, they'd manage something better than Asylum-level trope-gasms. Jesus...

Syfy today announced Z Nation, a 13-episode zombie series set to debut in the fall from production company The Asylum (the studio that brought us Sharknado). The action-horror series depicts the epic struggle to save humanity after a zombie apocalypse. The series, which will air on Syfy, will be produced by The Asylum and sold internationally by Dynamic Television.

Karl Schaefer (Eerie Indiana, Eureka, The Dead Zone) will serve as executive producer and showrunner. “Z Nation will take viewers where no zombie has gone before,” says Schaefer. The show, he continues, adds “a sense of hope to the horror of the apocalypse – our everyday heroes take the fight to the zombies. It’ll be an epic journey unlike anything you’ve seen before.”

In making the announcement, Chris Regina, Senior Vice President, Programming, Syfy, said: “Z Nation is a unique new journey into the long established zombie genre. Instead of existential despair, the series offers hope that somehow, some way, humanity will not only survive, but triumph. In producing their first ever weekly series, our long-time partners The Asylum have created a different way of telling an iconic story.”

In Z Nation, three years have passed since the zombie virus has gutted the country, and a team of everyday heroes must transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab waits for his blood. Although the antibodies he carries are the world’s last, best hope for a vaccine, he hides a dark secret that threatens them all. With humankind’s survival at stake, the ragtag band embarks on a journey of survival across three thousand miles of rusted-out post-apocalyptic America.

Z Nation is a dynamic ensemble drama that will plunge viewers into a fully-imagined post-zombie America and take them on an adventure with a diverse group of richly-drawn characters. As the reluctant heroes learn to work as a team and battle ever-more-menacing zombies, their flaws, idiosyncrasies, and moral dilemmas will ultimately become the heart of the show.
