On the heels of getting a fourth-season renewal for ABC Family drama Pretty Little Liars earlier today, Alloy Entertainment has sold sci-fi pitch The Hundred to the CW. Written by Jason Rothenberg, The Hundred is set a hundred years after mankind destroyed itself. Space-bound survivors take the first step to re-colonize Earth as 100 juvenile delinquents are released to the surface of a wildly changed planet, with the survival of the human race entirely in their hands. It is based on upcoming Alloy books written by Kass Morgan and published by Little, Brown. Warner Bros. TV, which owns Alloy Entertainment, is producing, with Rothenberg and Alloy’s Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo executive producing. This marks Rothenberg’s return to the CW where he previously co-created the pilot Body Politic starring Minka Kelly. On the feature side, he wrote a script for the Twilight Zone feature remake in the works at Warner Bros. Rothenberg and Alloy are with WME.
