Set in a time when women stop having children, The Lottery reveals a human population 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 important scientific breakthrough unfold, government interests and power begin to dominate one of the most personal and basic elements of humanity — the right to have a family. Timothy J. Sexton, who penned Children of Men and the new Toronto Film Festival title Libertador, will write the project and serve as executive producer with Dawn Olmstead (Prison Break, Hatfields & McCoys). Grady Girl Productions and Warner Horizon TV produce.
