For the sixth straight year, WBTVG gets Comic-Con off to a dramatic start by hosting a special sneak peek, world-premiere screening event on Preview Night, debuting some of the most hotly anticipated new series of the year. For 2013, WBTV will screen the complete pilot episodes of “Almost Human,” “The Tomorrow People” and “The 100” for the first time ever in public.

“The Originals”: From executive producer Julie Plec comes “The Originals,” a spinoff of The CW’s #1 series among Adults 18–34 and Comic-Con fan-favorite “The Vampire Diaries.” The sexy new drama centers on the Original Family, as Klaus (Joseph Morgan) returns to the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans.
“The Tomorrow People”: From executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow”), Julie Plec (“The Vampire Diaries”), Phil Klemmer (“Chuck”) and Danny Cannon (“Nikita”), “The Tomorrow People” is a story of several young people from around the world who represent the next stage in human evolution, possessing special powers, including the ability to teleport and communicate with each other telepathically.
