Heroes Creator Tim Kring Producing Superdrug Show for the CW

Fresh off his stint on Fox’s Kiefer Sutherland drama Touch, one-time Heroes creator Tim Kring has just sold a new show to the CW, Deadline reports. Exp centers around a foreign designer drug that makes users "faster, smarter, stronger and better in every way" – basically turning people into a Kanye song. It also explores what happens when the drug is "trafficked illegally into American high schools, weaving a morally and socially complex web that entangles politicians, law enforcement and teenagers looking for an edge in an ever-competitive and fast-paced world.” While that sounds more like the plot to a kiddie House of Cards, we trust the man behind Heroes to aptly deal with enhanced teenagers.
