The Braving the Elements anthology will feature multiple miniseries, each comprised of four 30-minute episodes, including: Lights Out, following crews who are the first ones on the scene to restore power during inclement - and often severe - weather; Turbine Cowboys, featuring the men and women who are pushed to the limit both physically and emotionally as they brave extreme heights and every conceivable weather condition to work on wind turbines; and Iron Men (working title), profiling the iron workers who spend their days hundreds of feet above New York City. Additional titles in the anthology will be added throughout the year.
"Working in extreme weather conditions requires a certain personality, and all of these miniseries feature a fascinating group of individuals who find their work thrilling, terrifying and rewarding all at the same time," said Bob Walker, executive vice president and general manager of networks and content, The Weather Channel. "As Braving the Elements explores the daily conditions in which these courageous men and women work, viewers will no doubt gain a profound respect for their contributions to society and our everyday lives."
