NEW YORK (AP) — The title of "The Tomorrow People" sounds like a good name for a circa-1967 rock band.

Come to think of it, the premise of this new CW series seems lifted from the '60s, too.

Consider: A number of attractive under-30s guys and gals are getting so much resistance from behind, in the form of a paramilitary group of scientists who don't like the fact that these Tomorrow People are a genetically advanced race boasting such gifts as telekinesis, teleportation and telepathic communication.

These youngsters are liable to step out of line with their amazing powers (or so the opposing force, called Ultra, fears). So these men mean to come and take them away — as in, eliminate. No wonder the outcasts hide out in an abandoned Manhattan subway station.

Into this band of Tomorrow People arrives Stephen Jameson, a high school kid who is discovering within himself unsettling new powers and urges, and doesn't know what to make of them (he thinks he's going crazy). The Tomorrow People implore him to join up.

But Dr. Jedikiah Price, the leader of Ultra, wants Stephen to join his struggle to eradicate the Tomorrow People, whom he believes pose an unpredictable, uncontrollable threat.

"I'm not the bad guy here," Price tells Stephen. "Not by a long shot."

What is Stephen to do: join the Establishment or embrace his counter-culture specialness in defiance of the old guard?

Add to the mix yet another ingredient — Stephen's search for the father who just may be a heroic revolutionary instead of a deserting deadbeat — and you've got a heady brew of action, sci-fi and vision quest.

It's also fun.

Robbie Amell ("Revenge") stars as Stephen, with Mark Pellegrino ("Lost," ''Supernatural") as Dr. Price. Luke Mitchell ("H20: Just Add Water"), Peyton List ("Mad Men") and Aaron Yoo ("Disturbia") make up the Tomorrow People's recruiting committee.

"The Tomorrow People" premieres Wednesday at 9 p.m. EDT. Everybody look! What's going down!
