The CW is in the process of developing a new drama about eternal life based on cryogenic preservation titled “Cry.”
Cry tells the story of a doctor who makes the astonishing medical breakthrough to bring cryogenically preserved people back to life, starting with the unfreezing of his own father — but he never expects that restoring life will have both glorious and devastating consequences.
Paulist Productions executives were attracted to Cry because it explores the moral dilemma cryogenics poses on relationships and society. Founded in 1960, Paulist Productions has produced film and television projects with writers including John Wells, Michael Crichton, Rod Serling and Tom Fontana. The company created the Humanitas Prize to celebrate writers who affirm human dignity and explore the meaning of life.
