JackTV amplifies its lineup of shows this October with the new sci-fi series The Tomorrow People and new seasons of Arrow and Revolution. Under JackTV’s “Playing first” campaign, these shows air just days after their initial U.S. telecast—keeping Filipino fans up to date with the latest plot twists. From a teenager with special abilities, a vigilante fighting to get back rule of his city, to a group of survivors in a post-apocalyptic America without electricity—the struggle for power is the binding force behind JackTV’s dominant assembly of new and returning programs.

Armed with the abilities of telekinesis, teleportation and telepathic communication, the Tomorrow People live in hiding as they are being hunted down by a paramilitary group of scientists known as Ultra, led by Dr. Jedikiah Price (Mark Pellegrino) who see their kind as a threat. As Stephen comes to grips with his powers, he learns some surprising news that leads him down an unknown path with the survival of the Tomorrow People resting on his shoulders.
