'Eyewitnesses' use cell phones, digital video cameras, PDA's and other communication devices to capture and share the cataclysmic event going on around them. In doc-like style, the program will attempt to be as scientifically accurate as possible on how such an Earth shattering natural disaster would actually play out around us while telling a dramatic narrative of how it will effect people's lives. The show is produced by NBC Peacock Productions.
