Each half-hour episode will highlight extreme weather conditions throughout the solar system and explore what would happen if these weather patterns occurred on Earth. Examples include Venus’s acid rain, Saturn’s winds and Mars’ dust storms.
Weather Channel has ordered six episodes from shingle Flight 33.
“Exploring these unique weather phenomena in our solar system is a fascinating journey, but one understands the true magnitude of these galactic storms so much more when they are theoretically placed into the familiar context of life on Earth,” said Michael Dingley, senior VP of content and development at the Weather Channel.
“Deadliest Space Weather” is yet another skein for the cabler’s growing original programming slate that includes shows “Coast Guard Alaska,” “Iron Men” and “Hurricane Hunters.”
