LIFETIME LAUNCHES NATIONAL SWEEPSTAKES TO PROMOTE JULY 20 PREMIERE OF NEW DRAMA "THE LOTTERY"

People with July 20 Birthdates Eligible to Win $10,000

LOS ANGELES, CA (July 16, 2014) - To promote the July 20 launch of its provocative new conspiracy thriller The Lottery (#TheLottery), Lifetime has launched a national sweepstakes through which people with a July 20 birthdate are eligible to win $10,000. To qualify, individuals must be no younger than 18 years of age and are required to submit their name, birthdate and contact information at LotteryLifetime.com. Randomly selected from all entries, the sweepstakes' winner will be required to verify his or her U.S. residence and provide a copy of a current government-issued identification as proof of age and date of birth in order to claim the $10,000 prize. The winner will be announced in the fall.

The Lottery, which will premiere this Sunday, July 20, at 10:00pm ET/PT, stars Marley Shelton (Eleventh Hour), Michael Graziadei (American Horror Story), David Alpay (The Vampire Diaries), Athena Karkanis (Low Winter Sun), Yul Vazquez (Magic City), Shelley Conn (Terra Nova) and Martin Donovan (Homeland).

Set in the year 2025, 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. After years of research, Dr. Alison Lennon (Shelton) and her team remarkably fertilize 100 embryos. However, her victory is short-lived when the Director of the U.S. Fertility Commission, Darius Hayes (Donovan), takes government control of the lab and informs the President (Vasquez) of the monumental scientific breakthrough. To determine which women will carry the prized embryos to term, Chief of Staff Vanessa Keller (Karkanis) convinces the President to hold a national lottery and a battle over the control of the 100 embryos begins. Michael Graziadei stars as Kyle, a recovering alcoholic and single father of one of the last children born in the country, while David Alpay stars as James, Alison's colleague and lab assistant. Shelley Conn portrays Gabrielle, the First Lady of the United States.

The Lottery is written by Timothy J. Sexton (Children of Men), who also serves as executive producer 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. Ten one-hour episodes have been ordered for this season.
