07/26/2009 (09:00PM - 11:00PM) (Sunday) : A 'WEATHER CREATION' SYSTEM
THREATENS THE EARTH'S FUTURE
In this two-part, four-hour miniseries, scientist Kirk Hafner (James
Van Der Beek) attempts to stop billionaire Robert Terrell (Treat Williams)
from destroying the earth with his "weather creation"
technology. Terrell's determination to manipulate the weather causes
catastrophic weather conditions -- a combination of hurricanes,
sandstorms, and drastic temperature changes that cause panic and hysteria
across the globe.
Hafner employs the help of news reporter Danni Nelson (Teri Polo) to
aid him in exposing Terrell's quest. Complications arise when seemingly
trustworthy authority figures aren't who they initially appeared to be.
This exhilarating action thriller follows Hafner on his journey to save
the human population from extinction. The miniseries also stars David
James Elliot, John Larroquette, Luke Perry and Marisol Nichols.
