Isaiah Washington: The 100 Will Take CW's Drama Brand to 'Mad Men, Breaking Bad' Heights

Isaiah Washington has high hopes for his new CW thriller The 100.

In an interview with TVLine at Comic-Con last month, the former Grey’s Anatomy actor predicted that the post-apocalyptic drama would usher in a prestigious new era for the network.

“The show is… taking the network to a different place that is maybe not what people are accustomed [to] watching on The CW,” Washington enthused. “The Vampire Diaries already opened up that door, but now with [exec producer] Jason Rothenberg we’re going to take it to that Mad Men and Breaking Bad level. It’s not just sci-fi.”
