Firestarter - Rekindled - Season 1 - Episode 1

Vincent Sforza works for a research company coming up with people who have been awarded money in big legal battles, but who have dropped off the radar. His latest target is Charlie McGee, a person he already declared dead as a girl twice already. This time, he tries researching her father and discovers a history of experiments on a drug called 'Lot 6', which gave those who took it heightened powers, if it didn't kill them. Charlie McGee could start fires. What he doesn't know is that the girl who is also researching that past is really Charlie McGee. FIRESTARTER is one of Stephen King's lesser regarded works that was made into a minor film starring Drew Barrymore. In that film, the mysterious government agency tried to harness Charlie McGee's power for their own with fiery consequences. The man behind the search for her now is the same man that she burned back then, only now he is played by Malcolm McDowell for whom a villain like this is child's play. Marguerite Moreau takes on the role of the adult Charlie, who has learned to carry fire extinguishers with her wherever she goes and who has to call off every sexual encounter before the world around her burns, but there is no depth to the characterisation, partly because of a script that is more about the plot than the characters. Vincent is even less interesting as a character, which doesn't bode well for the rest of the series.
