Doomsday Preppers TV Series Premieres Tuesday

On September 6, 2011, I was contacted by a New York City-based production company to talk with them about their casting process for a new series based on a recently-shown National Geographic Channel pilot entitled Doomsday Preppers. I blogged about the show a month earlier here. In case you’re interested, the series that evolved from that pilot premieres tomorrow night, Tuesday, February 7, at 9 PM Eastern Time/Pacific Time on the National Geographic Channel. From the Doomsday Preppers webpage:

About the Show

Doomsday Preppers explores the lives of otherwise ordinary Americans who are preparing for the end of the world as we know it. Unique in their beliefs, motivations, and strategies, preppers will go to whatever lengths they can to make sure they are prepared for any of life’s uncertainties. And with our expert’s assessment, they will find out their chances of survival if their worst fears become a reality.

Now, I wasn’t able to help the production company out as much as I wanted to, but I intend to watch the first episode of this new series and share my thoughts about it on Survival And Prosperity in the coming days

One more thing. On the Doomsday Preppers TV series section on the National Geographic Channel website you’ll find a bunch of interesting features related to the production. Chief among them is something called “Doomsday Dashboard.” From the site:

Which Disaster Scenario is Trending?

Will it be a megaquake, economic collapse, global pandemic, a 2012 cataclysm, nuclear war, solar-flare-induced power failures, or an extreme oil crisis that leads to the unraveling of society? Using Twitter, we are mining the chatter to see what is at the forefront of the public’s collective consciousness. Find out what the masses are saying, and see which catastrophe is on top of the Doomsday Dashboard.

When I viewed the “Doomsday Dashboard” Monday morning, the leading catastrophe on the “public’s collective consciousness”- Web Bot Project anyone?- is Megaquake (68% Twitter chatter), followed by Pandemic (11%), Economic Collapse (8%), Nuclear War/Radiation (7%), 2012 Cataclysm (5%), Extreme Oil Crisis (3%), and Electro-Magnetic Pulse (1%).

Is it me, or do those numbers tally up to be 103%? Oh well. You can visit the Doomsday Preppers area on the National Geographic Channel website here. Stay tuned for my follow-up discussion in a separate post.
