It's 2025, a world without strollers, preschool and Sesame Street. There's no need when the youngest child on Earth is 6 years old and every woman alive has become infertile. Humans are an endangered species.
That's the gut-wrenching premise of Lifetime's provocative new thriller The Lottery. You might call it a prequel to the 2006 movie Children of Men, a spiritual parable set in a violent, childless future. "While they have the same point of departure, it's a...

Netflix resurrects The Killing for one final six-episode season (its fourth) on Friday Aug. 1 (at 12:01 a.m. Pacific time). But to prep viewers who may have missed the show's run on AMC — or just need to bone up on the exploits of homicide detectives Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) and Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman) — the streaming video service is mounting a campaign this summer for viewers to binge the show's first three seasons.
TV Guide Magazine spoke with The Killing executive producer Veena Sud about the show's transition to Netflix, how it will change next season and whether this is truly the end for the drama. Sud and Netflix also unveil a new recap video, summarizing The Killing's first three seasons, below...

Imagine a world in which it's been five years since a baby was born. Welcome to Lifetime's new series, The Lottery, from Timothy J. Sexton, who earned an Oscar nomination for the Children of Men screenplay. Like that film, The Lottery is set in a dystopian world struck by global infertility. The lottery in question is held by the U.S. government to determine which women will carry 100 newly fertilized embryos.
Spoiler alert! The jaw-dropping, emotionally wrenching fifth season of CBS's The Good Wife fittingly ended with two more delicious surprises. Who would have guessed that...
Barbara Walters started smashing the TV-news glass ceiling in 1961 when she became the first female correspondent on Today. During the following five decades, the Massachusetts native was also the first woman to cohost a morning news show (Today in 1974), to coanchor a nightly news program (ABC Evening News in 1976), and then, for 25 years, to cohost the ABC newsmagazine 20/20. She became known as the Queen of Scoop as she wrangled major stars and world leaders for her trademark in-depth interviews and produced and hosted annual Oscar specials and The 10 Most Fascinating People. Finally, Walters conquered daytime 17 years ago with The View, the all-female talk show that dares to spotlight politics as well as makeup, cooking and gossip...

It looks as if The Bible has been a godsend. Last year's History miniseries averaged 11.4 million viewers overall, kicking off a new surge of religious-themed programming. ABC's new back-from-the-dead drama Resurrection, with its faith-based undercurrents, is averaging 10.2 million viewers, and the box-office success of such movies as ...
Being Human, the saga of supernatural roommates who just want to be ordinary folks, loses its lease Monday after four seasons on Syfy (which adapted the British hit of the same name).
