Help me identify this extremely short-lived sci-fi series

This was a tv series that was canceled almost immediately. I think there was only one episode as a matter of fact. Here’s what I remember.

A doctor makes a formula that makes you stop aging. After everyone in the world has taken it, about half of the people who have taken it turn into mutant cave people. The remaining civilized population all have crystals in their chests. The color of the crystal determines who you’re allowed to make babies with. If you breed with someone of the wrong crystal color, you risk giving birth to a mutant cave person.

Anyone know what I’m talking about?

Holy crap, I have no idea what that is but I’m dying to watch it now!

You’re thinking of Island City. Eric McCormack (Will Truman) played one of the “recessives”.

I know exactly the one you mean, but damned if I can remember the name; I think it was a pilot, not a short-lived show, and there were so many apocalyptic-future pilots in the 70s. I remember the guy who was half-mutant (mother had survived being raped), was the team muscle and had the only Black gene rating. Also, the teenage boy who was freaked because his mother looked like a hot 20, despite being at least 25 years older than him.

That might be it; the link doesn’t give me enough info to go on. I would have sworn it was longer ago than 1994.

There is more info in the IMDB user comments.

Sounds like **alphaboi867 **got a touchdown to me. :slight_smile:

That’s it! Thanks so much. :smiley:

Link behaving badly. Link.

Never mind! Putzed around with link so long, it was irrelevant by the time I’d finished.
