Can you imagine a world where women have stopped giving birth? Lifetime brings viewers to the year 2025 with the premiere of the provocative new conspiracy thriller “The Lottery” on Sunday, July 20, at 10PM ET/PT.
“The Lottery” is produced by Timothy J. Sexton alongside Rick Eid (“Hostages”) and Dawn Olmstead (“Prison Break”). Danny Cannon (“CSI”) directed and executive produced the pilot, which is from Grady Girl Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television.
Set within a dystopian future driven by a global fertility crisis, “The Lottery” reveals a world staring down the barrel of impending extinction as women have mysteriously stopped bearing children.

To determine which women will carry the prized embryos to term, a national lottery is held, and a battle over the control of the 100 embryos begins.
