According to Deadline Hollywood, List, 26, will play the part of Cara in "The Tomorrow People," an adaptation of a British sci-fi drama about young people with special powers who represent the next phase of human evolution.
The show is a collaboration between writer/director Greg Berlanti, who created "Everwood," and Julie Plec, who produced "The Vampire Diaries."
While living in Baltimore, List attended the Calvert School and Roland Park Country School.
She got her big break at 15, starring as rebellious teen Lucy Montgomery on "As the World Turns." Since then, she's appeared in dozens of television and movie roles, most notably last year as Jane Sterling on "Mad Men."
