In the CW’s upcoming post-apocalyptic drama “The 100,” even minor offenses are punishable by death from Isaiah Washington’s character Chancellor Jaha. So during San Diego Comic-Con, MTV Geek host Steven Smith asked the cast what crimes they’ve committed in real life that could potentially cause them to meet their end on the sci-fi series.
Washington was joined by co-stars Marie Avgeropoulos (“Cult,” “The Inbetweeners”), Eliza Taylor (“Neighbours,” “Pirate Islands”), Henry Ian Cusick (“Lost,” “Hitman”), and Thomas McDonnell (“The Forbidden Kingdom,” “Surburgatory”) to talk more about the futuristic “The Hundred,” where supplies for the scant remnants of the human race living on the Ark are so slim, that even the smallest criminal act for citizens over 18 will end up getting you floated (kicked out of the airlock into the cold wastes of space). Oh, and if you commit a crime before you’re 18, you can still find yourself locked up until you’re old enough to be executed.
The series is set 97 years in the aftermath of a nuclear war which has left the Earth uninhabitable, with a criminal youth sent down to the surface of the planet, forced to find out if humans can resume living there.
The series will make its debut on the CW as part of its midseason lineup.
