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 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!!!!

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!!!!!!!!!!!!
