To determine which women will carry the prized embryos to term, Chief of Staff Vanessa Keller (Karkanis) convinces the President to hold a national lottery and a battle over the control of the 100 embryos begins. Michael Graziadei stars as Kyle, a recovering alcoholic and single father of one of the last children born in the country, while David Alpay stars as James, Alison's colleague and lab assistant.

Outlaw Prophet: Warren Jeffs
Saturday, June 28, at 8p ET/PT
Outlaw Prophet: Warren Jeffs is the true story of the the fundamentalist Mormon leader who spent more than a year on the FBI's "10 Most Wanted List" for unlawful flight on charges related to his alledged arrangement of illegal marriages involving underage girls. Based on the book When Men Become Gods by New York Times best-selling author Stephen Singular, the movie chronicles Jeffs' rise to power after the death of his father, Rulon Jeffs. Within days of his father's passing, Warren married all of his father's wives and his dictatorial control over his polygamist followers ensued. He demanded women in the sect be completely subservient to men, banned laughing, and "reassigned" wives to other men at whim. Jeffs was eventually charged as an accomplice to rape for arranging underage marriages by the authorities but fled prosecution. After a year-long manhunt, he was finally apprehended in Texas and brought back to trial. The courtroom testimony of two brave young women who had escaped his reign of terror ensured he would finally be convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Warren Jeffs: Outlaw Prophet gives an inside look at the psychology of a cult leader and those who blindly follow him. Even to this day with their leader behind bars, members of his polygamist cult still believe that he is the prophet chosen by their god himself. Starring Tony Goldwyn and Martin Landau.
