Not content with The 100, The CW is aiming for The 4400. The 2004 series will find new life on the network known for its DCTV shows
According to, Taylor Elmore and Craig Sweeney — who both worked on the CBS TV adaptation of Limitless — will write and executive produce the pilot, with Elmore expected to take over as showrunner if the show gets picked up.
The 4400 ran for four seasons on USA and told the story of 4400 people from all over the world who randomly disappeared. One day in 2019, all of them returned to the spots they disappeared, not having aged at all and with no recollection of where they’d been all this time. Among its cast, the most notable star was Mahershala Ali, who would later become an Oscar winner and portray Cottonmouth on Marvel’s Luke Cage. Ali takes center stage in the third season of next year’s True Detective for HBO.
The 4400 is one of several TV shows being developed for The CW. The network is also developing woman-led adaptations of The Picture of Dorian Gray and the film Lean on Me, along with an adaptation of the novel The Lifeboat Clique. Should the network pick up The 4400, it’ll be the second reboot for the network in recent history, following the recently-released Charmed.Via this site
