Severe storms shut down Lifetime telepic

Mother Nature apparently doesn’t want you to know the identity of Clark Rockefeller.

Lifetime wound up being knocked off the air for a lengthy period of time Saturday night during the premiere of the heavily-promoted telepic “Who Is Clark Rockefeller?”

Lifetime blamed severe weather in the Mid-Atlantic and New England areas on Saturday night. The storms knocked Lifetime’s satellite trasmission facility, located north of New York, offline for much of the evening.

As a result, Lifetime’s East coast feed was blacked out for about an hour, while its West coast feed was down for about 20 minutes.

Lifetime decided to try it again on Sunday night, scheduling another run of “Who is Clark Rockefeller?” at 9 p.m. and 11 p.m.

Another encore presentation of the telepic, which stars Eric McCormack, Sherry Stringfield and Regina Taylor, will run on Monday at 9 p.m.
