Alloy Sells Post-Apocalyptic Drama To CW

Alloy Entertainment has sold sci-fi pitch The Hundred to the CW. Written by Jason Rothenberg, The Hundred is set a hundred years after mankind destroyed itself. Space-bound survivors take the first step to re-colonize Earth as 100 juvenile delinquents are released to the surface of a wildly changed planet, with the survival of the human race entirely in their hands
So it's the colonization of Australia, but with teenagers. Seems an odd strategy. If it were just about getting rid of some undesirables, that would be understandable, but if the survival of the whole species is at stake, shouldn't it be entrusted to responsible adults?
