Here we go (again!!!) with the THREAT OF STAGED NUCLEAR WAR, like "Jericho":
"The Colony" on Discovery Channel, check the trailer:http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/colony/
The synopsis (from Discovery Channel's site) (italics and red hi-lite are mine; I found the information to be a bit eerie, considering what's been going on in Louisiana):
AN ALL NEW SURVIVAL EXPERIMENT BEGINS TUESDAY, JULY 27 AT 10PM ET/PT
What would you do in the wake of a global catastrophe? Even if you survived it, could you survive the aftermath?
Season Two of THE COLONY introduces viewers to a new group of volunteers with differing backgrounds, skills and personalities, to bear witness to how these colonists will survive and rebuild in a world without electricity, running water, government or outside communication. Over the course of 10 episodes, the colonists — who include a construction foreman, teacher, carpenter and auto mechanic — must work to utilize and strengthen their exploration, technology and survival skills in ways they've never had to before. THE COLONY features on-going commentary and input from experts in homeland security, engineering, psychology and the medical community, with expertise and insight into what the future could look like after a biological disaster.Filmed on 10 acres of abandoned neighborhood on the Gulf Coast of Louisiana, THE COLONY'S simulated environment had been left decimated by Hurricane Katrina, a naturally occurring disaster zone that was slated to be bulldozed and turned into a public park
. Empty buildings, weedy streets and the backwoods are all the colonists have to work with as they scavenge essentials for survival from their surroundings while fending off threats such as wild animals and malicious outsiders.
Throughout this season, the colonists face daunting physical and emotional challenges as they attempt to survive in a world void of all the niceties they've ever known, including environmental dangers such as disastrous weather and indigenous wildlife.
THE COLONY begins with the volunteers facing a 72 hour isolation period to psychologically shift their perspective from our modern world to the end of the world. Shortly after the integration into the colony, the threat of survival becomes imminent as hostile outsiders push them into a physical confrontation. How do the colonists respond and will their newfound skills be enough to protect their supplies and lives?COLONY 2 LOCATION, Chalmette, LA
