THE SKED 2013 UPFRONTS: CW Promo – “The 100”


We have a short clip from CW’s midseason series THE 100, about a group of teens returning to a post-apocalyptic Earth.

Our heroine, it seems, is Octavia, the rebellious standout in the (as usual for CW, very pretty) group.  She also appears to be the only one with a living relative, her brother.  The clip suggests that this isn’t going to be the kind of post-apocalypse with decimated cityscapes, since they return to Earth and find a nice-looking forest.  Apart from that, it’s anybody’s guess.
