RHI ORIGINAL MINISERIES “FLOOD” MAKES U.S. DEBUT
ON ION TELEVISION DECEMBER 16

Four-Hour 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 Hawk Down).

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.”
