It's The Hunger Games mixed with Lord Of The Flies in THE 100

Now I know that I'm not exactly the demographic that The CW have in mind for their shows, but I likes me some Arrow and Supernatural, and I'm looking forward to seeing The Flash (if the pilot gets picked up that is!).

Overall The CW's line-up is quite heavy with Sci-Fi/Fantasy genre shows and they will be adding another Sci-Fi series next month when The 100 premieres. I'm keen to see how this plays out, I've heard it described as a kind of cross between The Hunger Games and Lord Of The Flies.

Among the cast are Eliza Taylor, Henry Ian Cusick, Paige Turco, Kelly Hu, Isaiah Washington and Marie Avgeropoulos. The official synopsis follows;

Ninety-seven years ago, nuclear Armageddon decimated planet Earth, destroying civilization. The only survivors were the 400 inhabitants of 12 international space stations that were in orbit at the time. Three generations have been born in space, the survivors now number 4,000, and resources are running out on their dying "Ark" - the 12 stations now linked together and re-purposed to keep the survivors alive. Draconian measures including capital punishment and population control are the order of the day, as the leaders of the Ark take ruthless steps to ensure their future, including secretly exiling a group of 100 juvenile prisoners to the Earth's surface to test whether it's habitable.

For the first time in nearly a century, humans have returned to planet Earth. Among the 100 exiles are Clarke, the bright teenage daughter of the Ark's chief medical officer; Wells, son of the Ark’s Chancellor; the daredevil Finn; and the brother/sister duo Bellamy and Octavia, whose illegal sibling status has always led them to flaunt the rules. Technologically blind to what’s happening on the planet below them, the Ark’s leaders - Clarke’s widowed mother, Abby; the Chancellor, Jaha; and his shadowy second in command, Kane - are faced with difficult decisions about life, death and the continued existence of the human race.

For the 100 young people on Earth, however, the alien planet they’ve never known is a mysterious realm that can be magical one moment and lethal the next. With the survival of the human race entirely in their hands, THE 100 must find a way to transcend their differences, unite and forge a new path on a wildly changed Earth that’s primitive, intense and teeming with the unknown.

The CW have released a brand new trailer to whet our appetites...

The 100 will premiere Wednesday March 19 at 9:00 p.m. That's the slot after Arrow so it's going to have a solid lead-in. Question is, will you be watching?
