I may be finding out late about this but, the National Geographic channel is airing a 2 hour fictionalized movie about a national grid down disaster.
The movie premiers Sunday October 27 at 9:00 pm. The national Geographic website describes the fictional story of a national power failure in the United States caused by a cyberattack. Sounds as if the attack is similar to an EMP attack, solar flare, or other kind of grid failure.
The site synopsis says the story "... is told in real time over ten days."
The synopsis describes the story as, "gritty, visceral and totally immersive, see what it takes to survive from day one, and who would be left standing when the lights come back on."
I'm not associated with NatGo in any way. I simply saw a teaser on the channel this morning and thought I would pass on information in which ya'll might be interested.
I'd be interested in checking that out, thanks for the info!
That will be an interesting one to watch. Hopefully they put it online quickly. Thanks!
I will be watching also National Geographic puts on some good videos.

That will be a interesting watch. I know we all have opinions on how such a thing would impact us, our neighbors and communities. There is no real way to tell.
Hey guys, just a reminder. This movie premiers Sunday at 9:00 pm ET and re-airs at 11:00 pm ET also on Sunday. Check the NatGo schedule for other re-airs. If memory serves, it plays again late night/early morning on Monday 28th and Wednesday 30th.
Wow, will be sure to watch this ! Thanks for the heads up !
Since it is produced by Nat Geo (does Doomsday Preppers),I'm curious how they will portray the prepper family. On Doomsday Preppers they seem to portray most preppers as the nut cases we are accused of being. OH! My favorites was the father who shot his left thumb off or nearly off. Wish I lived next door to him. After he kills himself, I could buy all his supplies cheap.
I marked it to record 2 days ago. We will see if it's worth watching since it's not regular TV.
The Blood of American Heroes is on nobama's hands....Remember Benghazi!
Our government HAS become that government our founders warned us about
That anti-American in our WH is lying again, how do I know you ask, his mouth is open
