       Additional Information  
      From science fiction icon and cult film favorite Kevin McCarthy comes a brand-new suspense series that combines the classic paranoia of the original Body Snatchers film, with the contemporary thrills of The X-Files....

    It began as a CIA project. A means to spy over long distances by powers of the mind. When the Agency pulled the plug on the PSI Project, Samuel Hunter decided to keep the experiment going. But then he tried to force one of his young subjects to use her special gifts-to commit an assassination....

    For one of Hunter's coworkers, it was the last straw. Assuming the false name "Kevin Mc-Connell," he helped three young recruits-Summer, James, and Kate-to escape.

    Now, they are a "family" unlike any other.

    They are gifted-or cursed-with special powers.

    And they're running for their lives....
