Lifetime's The Lottery: Did It Deliver?

Lifetime's The Lottery: Did It Deliver?
Children are the future. So what happens when there are only a few of them left and everyone on Earth is infertile and childless? That’s what Lifetimes’s The Lottery (which premiered Sunday night) hopes to explore.

If the premise sounds vaguely familiar, that’s because the series’ creator is none other than Timothy J. Sexton, the man who co-wrote Children of Men, a dystopic science-fiction film that investigated the same idea – only The Lottery is set a few years earlier, in 2025.

Preview: Lifetime’s ‘The Lottery’

Remember Alfonso Cuaron’s 2006 movie “Children of Men?”

Lifetime Channel’s “The Lottery” plays on the similar concept of the near future—women stopped having children and the human race is on a path of extinction. However, the television series will begin with a small group of scientists managing to create 100 embryos to be successfully fertilized. And a national lottery is created to decide on which women could play the surrogate mothers.

Lifetime Channel was able to let Latino-Review preview its pilot episode before its premiere date on Sunday, July 20.

Without giving major spoilers, the story mainly follows Dr. Alison Lennon (played by Marley Shelton) and her team manage fertilize eggs with sperms and Kyle (played by Michael Graziadei), a father to the last and youngest children on the planet.

Despite the successful fertilization, a government military agency is trying to shut down the program headed by Darius Hayes (played

TV Review: ‘The Lottery’

TV Review: ‘The Lottery’
Bringing together elements also found in CBS’ “Extant” – life conception, science fiction and the threat of human extinction – Lifetime’s “The Lottery” is more political thriller than anything else, a series that does little to establish its place or time while setting up a high-stakes drama centered around two seemingly overmatched protagonists against the wheels of government. Created by Timothy J. Sexton, who wrote the similarly dystopian feature “Children of Men,” the premiere is enough to whet the appetite, though a wholehearted endorsement would be, pardon the expression, premature.

The concept is certainly provocative: a global fertility crisis, followed by the last birth of children – a mere six of them – in 2019. Now 2025, the world is panicked, realizing that unless humans regain the ability to reproduce, they’re destined to die out as a species.

Enter Dr. Alison Lennon (Marley Shelton), who has somehow managed to fertilize 100 embryos; and Kyle (Michael Graziadei
