The CW Columbus - The 100

Its been 97 years since nuclear Armageddon decimated the Earth, destroying civilization.  The only survivors were the 400 inhabitants of 12 international space stations that were lucky enough to be in orbit at the time.  Since then, three generations have been born in space and the population has swelled to the thousands on the Ark " the 12 stations now linked together and re-purposed to keep the survivors alive.  Life on the Ark is hard.  Population is tightly controlled, resources are severely rationed and all crimes, no matter how petty, are punishable by death"unless youre under 18.  Perhaps, they werent so lucky after all. 

As our story begins, life in space has just gotten even harder.  Unbeknownst to the general population, the Ark is dying.  In a desperate attempt to prevent the extinction of humanity, a group of 100 juvenile prisoners are secretly exiled to the ground to test whether the atmosphere can once again support life.  The youth have quite literally inherited the Earth.

Among the 100 young exiles are Clarke (newcomer Eliza Taylor), the bright teenage daughter of the Arks chief medical officer; the daredevil Finn (Thomas McDonell, Suburgatory); the brother/sister duo of Bellamy (newcomer Bob Morley) and Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos, 50/50), whose illegal sibling status has always led them to flaunt the rules; the lighthearted Jasper (Devon Bostick, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules); and the resourceful Monty (Christopher Larkin, Squad 85)

Technologically blind to whats happening on the planet below them, the Arks leaders " Clarkes widowed mother, Abby (Paige Turco, Person of Interest, Damages); Chancellor Jaha (Isaiah Washington, Blue Caprice, Greys Anatomy); and his shadowy second-in-command, Kane (Henry Ian Cusick, Scandal, Lost) " 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 theyve never known is a mysterious realm that can be magical one moment and lethal the next.  With the survival of humanity 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 thats primitive, intense and teeming with the unknown.
