If “Revolution,” “The Walking Dead,” “Falling Skies” and Syfy’s upcoming “Defiance” aren’t sating your lust for post-apocalyptic hourlong mayhem, The CW is developing “The Hundred,” the tale of a hundred juvenile delinquents charged with saving the human race by repopulating a long-abandoned Earth.
It carries the smell of “Hunger Games,” if you’re asking me.
Set in the far future, the script is from Jason Rothenberg, who scripted the channel’s 2009 “Body Politic” pilot, which followed twentysomethings working in Washington, D.C.
Rothenberg also wrote the proposed “Twilight Zone” movie being developed at Warner Bros.
