SHOW: The 100, drama

WHO: Eliza Taylor, Henry Ian Cusick (Lost), Kelly Hu (Arrow), Isaiah Washington (Grey’s Anatomy), Eli Goree, Bob Morley, Marie Avgeropoulos (Cult), Paige Turco, Thomas McDonell, Christopher Larkin

WHAT: Ninety-seven years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization, a spaceship housing the lone human survivors sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth to investigate the possibility of re-colonizing the planet. Based on the forthcoming The Hundred book series.

WHEN: TBA (midseason)


BOTTOM LINE: It’s a story about one hundred young men and women, mostly white. It sounds and looks a lot like The CW. It also reminds me of Terra Nova. None of those things makes it exciting. But, Isaiah Washington and Henry Ian Cusick do. I’ll watch the pilot for them. That’ll determine if they get anything else.
