Great news for Michael Graziadei, the former Daniel Romalotti of The Young and the Restless!  Deadline.com revealed today that the drama The Lottery, in which he stars, has been picked-up by Lifetime for a ten episode deal! 

About the background of the story of The Lottery: The series is set in a dystopian future when women have stopped having children, threatening extinction of the human race. When 100 embryos are successfully fertilized, a national lottery is held to decide the surrogates.

Lifetime’s general manager Rob Sharenow said about the project:  “The Lottery is one of the most provocative and original concepts we’ve ever seen. Tim Sexton’s unique dystopian thriller represents an exciting new direction for Lifetime and continues cable’s position on the leading edge of bold, high-quality scripted drama.”

The project, written by Sexton, stars Michael Graziadei, along with Marley Shelton, David Alpay, Martin Donovan, Lesley Ann Brandt and Louise Lombardi.

Will you be checking out The Lottery to see Michael in it?  Does the premise of the story intrigue you?  Do you miss Michael as Daniel on Y&R?  Let us know!

I miss him on the show and his character, but I sincerely doubt we will ever see him back on the soap; maybe one day if they ever recast Phyllis perhaps they will recast Danny– but the mother son chemistry between him and MS will never be repeated. As for this new show, it sounds strange, but different can either take off or it can flop big time, lets hope his sake it is former not the latter.

I’ll watch to support Michael but it’s not something I would watch if he weren’t in it.

I will so watch The Lottery with Michael. I was so sad to see him leave and the “leaving” continued until MM &BM. Too much talent lost on Y&R, but really, really excited for Michael! Way to persevere! GOOD LUCK, Michael! And Thanks, Lifetime, for an interesting concept to watch!

I think Daniel died for me the day they got rid of the “real Lily”-Davetta Sherwood. She was Dru’s mini me, CK sucks and quite frankly is a miscast for the part of the daughter of Dru- there was a mix up at the hospital. Heck I would rather Hillary be Dru’s daughter than CK’s version of Lily. She lacks that toughness in her demeanor and she doesn’t have street smarts. I hope he never returns because I no longer watch Y&R! So kuddos to him!

In the 33 years I have been watching “Young and the Restless,” Daniel was my No. 1 least favorite character of all-time.

No. 2 was Amber.
