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.

I have been watching the lottery since it first aired.. and I have been watching it ever since. I happen to like the show a lot, and I would hate for it to be cancelled right when it was getting interesting. it seems every time that I find a show that I really like it ends up getting cancelled. please keep it on air and allow there to be a second season! give the show a chance, just because you feel the rating may be low to your standards or compared to other shows does not mean there aren’t people out here watching it. give it a chance!

I love this show i had to record it because i work nightshift at sysco harrisonburg. I always looked forward to watching it when i got off work. I just watched episode 10. Not sure if there will be more or not. I sure hope it dont end like that i want to see more. I have some good ideas to add a twist to the show as well. Very creative. Give me more lottery

Please continue the series; it’s so different from anything else out there.

I tentatively started watching this show, recording all the episodes. I finally finished binge watching and think it should continue. It has a lot of positive elements that include good acting, plotting, character development that all take you to places you didn’t expect to go. Although I do find it a bit absurd that so many high level people could be murdered so easily with little or no explanation to the press or the population.

I definitely think it should be renewed

I think it is a very intelligent story. Unfortunately, the story could be true sometime in the future. Government is becoming more and more controlling one way or another. Please continue the series.

They should renew the series, plain and simple.
