Discovery-owned network Science Channel has slated a June premiere date for its hurricane-themed series Hurricane Man.
Produced by ScreenDog Productions in association with BBC Studios, the eight-part series features veteran storm chaser Josh Morgerman as he puts himself at the center of a destructive storm’s path. His goal is to gather scientific data that can be used by scientists to better study and understand these devastating storms.
Additionally, the series will take a close look at what makes hurricanes so deadly and the impact they have on people around the world. Hurricane Man will chronicle the journey of those surviving the behemoth cyclones, including the stories of families who remain in the storm’s path, and the local emergency rescue crews risking their lives to save others.
From remote Japanese cities to the coastal waters of America’s Deep South, Hurricane Man shows what happens when these monster cyclones hit cities.
The executive producer for ScreenDog is Ed Kellie. Lindsey Foster Blumberg is supervising producer for Science Channel.
Hurricane Man premieres June 18 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Science Channel.
British commercial broadcaster UKTV will also be rolling out Hurricane Man in 2019 on its entertainment channel Dave.
