From Carina's article on Zap2It:

The CW has ordered a pilot for a current adaptation of "The Tomorrow People," a beloved '70s British series about humans with supernatural abilities. Powers like telepathy, telekinesis, teleportation, and other interesting tele-things emerge in teenagers, complicating their lives and relationships. Presented as the next stage of human evolution, the only thing these teenagers can't do is intentionally kill other people.

The new adaptation has quite a pedigree, as it's executive produced by Greg Berlanti ("Arrow," "Political Animals") and Julie Plec ("The Vampire Diaries," "Kyle XY"). The pilot was written by Phil Klemmer ("Chuck").

FLAIL!!!!! Based on the 70s series! I don't know if that means we get a John or an Elizabeth or a Stephen, or whether the whole cast will be American (which I assume as it's a US show, not a UK show this time) or if they're going to mix international characters, or how they're updating it, but the FACT of it - the FACT that the adorable awesomeness of the premise will be done at least for a pilot in a CW-style way? (My headcasting involves Evanna Lynch and Colin Ford, and that's with no knowledge of anything but the concept and the Original Series.)

Omg flail wow and squee. And yes I already have a twitter account for it.
