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.

Series Finale

Episode #10 — In Extremis
The President announces the winners of the Lottery as the mystery behind the infertility crisis comes to a head.

Love the show! It reminds me of Lost. It makes you think and it’s very intriguing.

Pls don’t cancel. It’s a great show. It wasn’t aired on August 31st, what happened?

I have to admit, I wasn’t excited about a Lifetime TV show, but I gave the lottery a chance, and it’s very interesting. Acting is decent enough, but the storyline is very well done and the concept has longevity.

Hopefully, Lifetime will do some major marketing on this, and keep it around for a few seasons. It deserves it.

One thing about the show: it lacks flash. It feels like it could have been made in the eighties. You need some post-production people to zip it up, so it doesn’t have that dated feel to it.

They really should do more research on the cities they claim the girls to be from. The scenery looks nothing like the places it claims to be. The girl from “Brenham, Texas” clings to the idea like it is the worst thing in the world. Yes, it is a small town but there are much smaller towns in the state. A major state highway runs through the town and there is a junior college.

I think this could be a good show. Michael Graziadei and Athena Karkanis are both excellent. I only have one question. Steven Culp is listed as the vice president but Ive never seen him. What’s up with that?


Stan August 23, 2014 at 1:25 pm

Steven Culp will appear on the seventh episode of “The Lottery.”


Carole August 24, 2014 at 1:01 am

Thanks Stan!

This could be good a good show but the mistakes are just
to many to mention.

Think the show should be cancelled……huge horror, sci fi fan …it is all I watch
Went thru infertility treatments…spent all our money ….miscarried…husband died at 37
Want to replace the time slot with something that all horror/ sci fi fanatics can watch..
Love Witches of East wick, as a woman think it should be followed by a show that women are comfortable with
hope you consider what I have said

I love the Lottery show very very much. It is a great show different from other shows . I can not wait to see it. I do not go out on Sunday night because I do not want to miss the show. Please renew this show again and again.
