RHI ORIGINAL MINISERIES “FLOOD” MAKES U.S. DEBUT
TELEVISION DECEMBER 16
Television Event Imagines London Underwater and Asks ‘What If?’
RHI Entertainment announced today that the
four-hour television event Flood will make its U.S. debut during the RHI
Movie Weekend on the ION Television Network Sunday, December 16 (7/6c).
Airing in its entirety in one night, Flood stars Robert Carlyle (Human
Trafficking, Trainspotting, The Full Monty), Jessalyn Gilsig (Prison
Break, Nip/Tuck), Tom Courtenay (The Loneliness of the Long Distance
Runner, Dr. Zhivago), Joanne Whalley (Scandal, Dance with a Stranger),
David Suchet (Poirot, A World Apart), Nigel Planer (Hogfather, SpongeBob
SquarePants, The Young Ones), and Tom Hardy (Marie Antoinette, Black
When a raging storm coincides with high tides to
unleash a colossal tidal surge, the River Thames quickly rises to
unprecedented levels and overwhelms the series of barriers designed to
keep the city of London safe and dry. As millions of lives hang in the
balance, three experts - a top marine engineer, his ex-wife and his
father – race against time to save a city on the brink of annihilation.
With global warming, rising sea levels, intensifying storms and other
real-life issues making headlines on a daily basis, Flood takes viewers
to the heart of a catastrophe that seems both unimaginable and yet all
too possible in today’s world.
Shot over eleven weeks in South Africa and over two
weeks on location in London, Flood is directed by Tony Mitchell. For
ultimate realism, the production included 30 tons of water, 27 sets with
water and four large water tanks, all combined with CG special effects.
Flood is based on the best-selling novel (of the same name) by author
Richard Doyle, the grand-nephew of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
“Flood perfectly delivers on our promise to make
the RHI Movie Weekend on ION Television a premiere destination for the
best in original, event programming,” said Robert Halmi, Jr., President
and CEO of RHI Entertainment. “It is compelling, adrenaline-charged
television that will have viewers on the edge of their seats and stay
with them even after the final credits roll.”
“ION Television is gaining recognition for its
quality weekend programming, provided in partnership with RHI
Entertainment,” said Brandon Burgess, CEO of ION Networks. “We are
delighted to bring this exciting original film to our growing audience
of viewers who are increasingly finding that ION Television is the place
for big event weekend television.”
