"The Lottery" (TV show) is a scripted drama series on Lifetime that is a conspiracy thriller.

Set in a dystopian future when women have stopped having children, the series reveals a world staring down the barrel of impending extinction. Remarkably, 100 embryos are successfully fertilized and a national lottery is held to decide the surrogates. As conflict, control and mystery over this global crisis unfolds, the government's interests and power begin to dominate, igniting a highly controversial debate over our fundamental and personal freedom to raise a family.

The cast includes Marley Shelton ("Eleventh Hour") as Dr. Alison Lennon, the brilliant fertility specialist whose scientific breakthrough may have life-and-death consequences; Michael Graziadei ("American Horror Story") as Kyle, a recovering alcoholic and single father of one of the last children born in the country; David Alpay ("The Vampire Diaries") as James, Alison's colleague and lab assistant; and Martin Donovan ("Homeland") as Darius Hayes, a calculating government official willing to use any strategy to achieve what he believes is the greater good.

"The Lottery" was written by Timothy J. Sexton ("Children of Men," "Walkout," "Live from Baghdad," "Boycott," "For Love or Country: The Arturo Sandoval Story"), who also serves as executive producer with Dawn Olmstead ("Prison Break," "Tru Calling"). Danny Cannon ("CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "Nikita") directed and executive produced the pilot, which is from Grady Girl Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television.
