Weather Channel greenlights trio

Net to offer three new series for March

The winds continue to blow in more original programming for the Weather Channel, as the cabler has greenlit three new series for March.

Even though the Mayan Apocalypse didn’t come to fruition, Weather Channel is still diving into the apocalypse trend in reality TV, greenlighting “Forecasting the End.” Series lets scientists explore the “what ifs?” behind super-volcanoes, mega-tsunamis, methane eruptions and other natural disasters. The first of six half-hour episodes from Ping Pong Prods. will debut on March 21.

“Loaded” centers on the high-risk world of trucking and the drivers that face extreme elements to deliver on time. Weather Channel ordered six half-hour episodes from Cineflix and will bow the skein on March 25.

Finally, Weather Channel ordered four half-hour episodes of “Lava Chasers.” Series from Electric Sky follows the adventurers, residents and scientists in Hawaii who strive to understand the islands’ volcanoes and keep others out of harm’s way. Skein will premiere March 26 at 8 p.m.

Three programs join previously announced “Prospectors” in Weather Channel’s March lineup.
