4400 is arriving this fall on The CW, and the network has released a number of teasers for the reboot of The 4400, the USA Network TV show which aired 2004-07. The mystery series focuses on the return of 4400 people who vanished through various points in time.
Joseph David-Jones, Ireon Roach, Brittany Adebumola, TL Thompson, Jaye Ladymore, Derrick A. King, Khailah Johnson, Cory Jeacoma, Amarr Wooten, and Autumn Best star in the drama. The CW revealed more about the 4400 in a press release.
“Over the last century at least, four thousand four hundred people who were overlooked, undervalued, or otherwise marginalized vanished without a trace off the face of the planet. Last night, inexplicably, they were all returned in an instant to Detroit, MI, having not aged a day and with no memory of what happened to them.
As the government races to understand the phenomenon, analyze the potential threat, and contain the story, an empathetic social worker (Joseph David-Jones, Arrow) and hardened community corrections officer (Ireon Roach, Candyman) are among the civil servants called upon to deal with the uncanny refugees. The new partners clash in ideology and approach, but gradually find they have more in common than they thought as they become familiar with those under their care, including: a lawyer and resilient young mother from the early aughts (Brittany Adebumola, Grand Army), whose unexpected reunion with her estranged husband (Cory Jeacoma, Jersey Boys) and suddenly teenaged daughter is immediately rocky; a WWI Army surgeon fresh from the Harlem Renaissance (TL Thompson, Broadway’s Straight White Men); an influential hidden figure from the Mississippi civil rights movement (Jaye Ladymore, Empire); a black sheep reverend-scion born to a notable televangelist family in 1990s Chicago (Derrick A. King, Call Your Mother); a seemingly shallow but misunderstood D-list reality TV star (newcomer Khailah Johnson) from Miami, circa 2015; and two wildly different unaccompanied teens, a vibrant girl (newcomer Autumn Best) whose bell bottoms give away her 1970s upbringing, and an introspective, prescient boy (Amarr Wooten, Liv and Maddie) whose origin remains a mystery.
These unwilling time travelers, collectively the 4400, must grapple with their impossible new reality, the fact that they’ve been returned with a few… upgrades, and the increasing likelihood that they were brought back now for a reason they’re only beginning to understand. Based on the original TV series created by Scott Peters and Renee Echevarria, 4400 is from CBS Studios and is executive produced by Ariana Jackson, who wrote the pilot, Sunil Nayar, and Anna Fricke and Laura Terry of Pursued By a Bear.”
