In addition to Star-Crossed, The CW is also holding The 100 for Midseason. Of the Hunger Games-like projects in development, The 100 is the scripted drama that made the cut. The series follows a group of juvenile delinquents sent down to earth after humanity abandoned the uninhabitable planet nearly 100 years ago. With resources depleting on the space-arks that have served as the home to what's left of mankind, these mostly-unsupervised kids are tasked with exploring Earth to see if it's habitable.
The clip above shows us the teens who are about to set foot on Earth for the first time in their lives. That includes Octavia and Bellamy, who are brother and sister, which apparently is a rarity among society. There's more information about that in the description below.
All I could think while watching the clip was, what's left of mankind is really good-looking. Of course, it's a TV show, and one on the CW, so that should be expected. The series creates a scenario where kids with a history of unruliness are left to their own devices in the wild. Anything can happen. Is this Lord of the Flies with beautiful people? There's definite potential for something like that. What kind of rules and society will these explorers adopt? Or will it be every man for himself now that they're wandering a (seemingly) vacant planet.
