The CW is determined to be the leader in genre programming. They’ve covered vampires, witches, werewolves, comic books superheroes and everything else under the spectrum. With the new pilot THE TOMORROW PEOPLE, premiering Wed, Oct 9th at 9pm, they’re taking on the next steps in human evolution. Based on a British series from the 70’s, the Tomorrow People are seemingly normal humans with latent “special powers” like telekinesis, teleportation and telepathy, which break out in their teens. Mix in a super-secret military organization hunting down the Tomorrow People, long dead family secrets coming to the surface and some pretty fun visual effects and you’ve got an entertaining new series.

But will THE TOMORROW PEOPLE stand out amongst a slew of new shows this fall and all the genre series already established? Time and some decent writing will tell. THE TOMORROW PEOPLE has a powerhouse team behind it in executive producers Greg Berlanti (ARROW), Julie Plec (VAMPIRE DIARIES) and director Danny Cannon (NIKITA). Not to mention a strong (and very attractive) cast lead by Robbie Amell (1600 PENN) staring as Steven Jameson and Mark Pellegrino (LOST, SUPERNATURAL) as antagonist Dr. Jedikiah Price. Series leads Robbie Amell and Mark Pellegrino joined Greg Berlanti, Julie Plec and Danny Cannon at the Paley Center Fall TV Preview for the CW in Beverly Hills. First, they stopped by the red carpet to chat with us on what THE TOMORROW PEOPLE is all about and to give some insight on what to expect from the first season.

THE TOMORROW PEOPLE airs Wednesdays at 9PM on The CW.

Red Carpet Redux: The CASTLE Cast and Creative Team Tease Season 6 at the Paley Center Celebration

ABC’s CASTLE hasn’t lost any steam with its rabid fanbase moving into the sixth season. Hosting CASTLE for the third time, the Paley Center in Los Angeles welcomed cast and crew from the drama for a panel in front of a sold out fanatic audience and live steaming feed. There was plenty for a panel to cover for the new season. Let’s count it off: an engagement for Castle and Beckett, a once-in-a-lifetime career opp for Beckett with the Attorney General, making her leave the dream team back in NYC, Alexis back from a summer in South America and throwing some fun (read: unwelcome) surprises Castle’s way, and a new baby for Det. Ryan.

Cast members Susan Sullivan (Martha), Molly Quinn (Alexis), Seamus Dever (Det. Ryan), Juliana Dever (Jenny Ryan), Jon Huertas (Det. Esposito), screenwriter Terri Miller and executive producer Andrew Marlowe chatted it up on the red carpet of the Paley Center CASTLE event. Between giving us teasers on the new season and a few behind-the-scenes anecdotes, they also gave some morbid answers to the question: how haven’t we seen someone die on CASTLE?

With only two more episodes left as DEXTER wraps its 8-season run, cast and fans are trying to find ways to say goodbye.  At a recent event hosted by the Paley Center in Beverly Hills, one last chance was provided to celebrate the remarkable show that endeared a serial killer to millions of fans with “Dexter: The Final Farewell.”  Everyone is hoping that there will be a way for Dexter to find a “happily ever ending,” but it seems incongruous that a killer would have a chance a long, healthy life after tempting fate one too many times.

Taking a minute to offer their reflective thoughts on the remarkable series, a few of the cast took the time to share their thoughts on DEXTER, the legacy of the show and their favorite villains:

Dexter Morgan, the Ice Truck Killer, Trinity, Hannah McKay, the Brain Surgeon — astoundingly these simple names and monikers are going to be forever etched in our memories. DEXTER, as a series, challenged us to embrace a serial killer and the Code by which he lived.  It also encouraged us to root for his unique viewpoint and the heinous crimes he committed, all in the name of ensuring justice was served and that the criminal garbage roaming our streets would meet a death fitting their own crimes.

Simultaneously, DEXTER helped redefine what is family and what it means to love, cherish and protect one’s family — no matter what their sins.  The unusual relationship between Dexter and his adopted sister Deb has been one of the most riveting and mind-boggling relationships to grace the television screen.  But we understood that underneath it all, they were a brother and sister who simply loved each other no matter what.

We hope that the final episodes will continue to honor the characters we have grown to love and that the show will find a fitting end to this incredible journey we were privileged to take with them. So be sure to tune in for the final two episodes on Sunday, September 15th and 22nd at 9:00 p.m. on Showtime to see how it all ends.  We will be rooting for a good ending to a remarkable series that captured our hearts.
