TV show description:      
This thriller series takes place in the year 2025, in a world that’s in the midst of a fertility crisis. Civilization is facing extinction as women have mysteriously stopped bearing children.

After years of research, Doctor Alison Lennon (Marley Shelton) and her team are remarkably able to fertilize 100 human eggs. However, her victory is short-lived when the Director of the US Fertility Commission, Darius Hayes (Martin Donovan), takes government control of the lab and informs the President (Yul Vasquez) of the monumental scientific breakthrough.

To determine which women will carry the prized embryos to term, Chief of Staff Vanessa Keller (Athena Karkanis) convinces the President to hold a national lottery — and a battle over the control of the 100 embryos begins.

Other characters include: Kyle (Michael Graziadei), a recovering alcoholic and single father of one of the last children born in the country; James (David Alpay), Alison’s colleague and lab assistant; and Gabrielle (Shelley Conn), the First Lady of the United States.

      This was a great show that needs to be renewed! I do not understand how Lifetime could cancel such a great show? What else do they have? Totally dumb move!

      Lifetime missed the boat with this show! It is so good and possibly could occur. This was one of Lifetime’s best shows so it doesn’t make sense. Bring it back.

  3. Shirley shambsugh says

    I really liked it, u never know it could be real life some day. They always cancel good shows and leave stupid crap on

    • wypn says

      This had to be a mistake to cancel the networks best show. I do not understand how you cancel great shows. Renew it now!

  4. dinor8er says

    DAM the networks are so idiotic!!! I swear the ones that are cancelled are what most of America wants but if it doesn’t fit the “AGENDA” of the networks it gets the boot!!!!!!

    • wypn says

      Why is ts still being debated? This show should be renewed by some network!It is too good to be cancelled. Lifetime is so stupid!. They don’t have many really good shows on their network right now. Wake up and look —it is a great show!!!!!!

    great show…..Pretty soon all were going to be left with is the 100th season of the bachelor lol…..

    • wypn says

      It is a great show so they cancel it! It is always the status quo. If it’s good get rid of it. It is a well written show with a probable plot. I hope they bring it back since it is sorely missed! It’s not like they have a whole lot of great shows. This is the best of their lineup. I want them to bring it back!!!!!!!!!!!RENEW!!!!!!!!RENEW!!!!!!!RENEW!!!!!!!

    Please renew this show! It was very good and just getting heated up when the 1st season ended. loved some of the actors and was really hoping for and looking forward to season 2!

    • wypn says

      I can’t believe that Lifetime missed the boat on this one! It was a great show and very interesting to say the least. It has a probable plot that many shows do not have at all. It has a multitude of story lines left to play out at any time. I wish and hope that another network has the brains to pick it up when Lifetime has totally screwed up. I was looking for when it would return for the next season and then found out the bad news. Please try to keep the good shows for a change!!!!

    • wypn says

      What else is new? They have a great show and then cancel it!!! What moron makes these decisions? They keep a lot of shows that are terrible and cancel good ones.

    • wypn says

      Such a dumb question. Of course they should renew this show for at least another 3 seasons. There is so much going on in plot lines to continue ad it is definitely a really good show. It was at a cliffhanger segment then we get nothing but screwed on this. I want it to continue. RENEW NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!
