Set in a future where women have stopped having children, The Lottery 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 Lottery is one of the most provocative and original concepts we've ever seen," Rob Sharenow, Lifetime's Executive Vice President and General Manager, said in a statement. "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."
