This “reimagining” of the 1970s British children’s science-fiction program centers on Stephen Jameson, who learns he has psychic powers which make him the next step in mankind’s evolution. Stephen is contacted by other “tomorrow people” who have banded together for protection, including leader John, smart-aleck Russell, and the beautiful Cara., who has an unexplained psychic link with Stephen. The psychics are hunted by Stephen’s uncle, Dr. Jedekiah Price, leader of the government group ULTRA, who seeks to enslave or exterminate them.

Violence in the first episode was limited to several violent fistfights and Price’s implied murder of several psychics. Notably, the “tomorrow people” are incapable of killing others. Language included “damn,” “hell,” “bitch,” and “dick.”
