Lifetime Picks Up The Lottery as a New Series


 Lifetime has decided to stray from its usual light hearted, family centered series and has picked up the conspiracy thriller pilot, The Lottery for 10 episodes. This new series will join Lifetime’s recently picked up new drama Un-Real, from A+E Studios, which also received a 10-episode order. The Lottery is set in a dystopian future where women have stopped having children, threatening extinction of the human race. When 100 embryos are successfully fertilized, a national lottery is held to decide the surrogates. “The Lottery is one of the most provocative and original concepts we’ve ever seen,” says Lifetime’s general manager Rob Sharenow. “Tim Sexton’s unique dystopian thriller represents an exciting new direction for Lifetime and continues cable’s position on the leading edge of bold, high-quality scripted drama.” The Lottery stars Marley Shelton, Michael Graziadei, David Alpay, Martin Donovan, Lesley Ann Brandt and Louise Lombardi.

The Lottery seems like a great show, and I can't wait to watch. Will you be watching this conspiracy thriller?
