Thom Beers and Discovery serve up a postapocolyptic series

The Colony, a series produced by Original Productions and Discovery Channel that made its debut on July 21, has a unique premise for a reality show, especially one airing on Discovery. The idea is this: a viral outbreak has decimated the world's population, there is chaos, Los Angeles is devastated and ten strangers try to rebuild a society in a warehouse called the Sanctuary. The warehouse and situations are staged, and the ten contestants are called 'volunteers.'
