“With the drought crisis in California, America is starting to wake up to a future where fresh drinking water is scarce, expensive and beyond our control,” said Gibney. “With the global reach of National Geographic, we hope to stress the urgency and, now more than ever, we need to understand what’s literally under the surface.”

Parched” will air globally on NatGeo channels in 171 countries and will also receive a limited theater release.
