E4 has commissioned a new series about teenagers with superpowers.

Comedy drama Misfits follows a group of teens who get caught in a flashstorm while on community service and find themselves saddled with strange new powers.

Party-girl Alisha (Antonia Thomas) can send people into a sexual frenzy with just one touch, hard-as-nails Kelly (Lauren Socha) can suddenly hear people's thoughts, one-time sporting hero Curtis (Nathan Stewart Jarrett) discovers he has the ability to turn back time, and painfully shy nerd Simon (Iwan Rheon) can make himself invisible.

The only member of the ASBO gang who appears unaffected by the storm is smart aleck Nathan (Robert Sheehan).

Misfits is scheduled to air later this year on E4.
