TOP SECRET PROTOCALS REVEALED FOR THE FIRST TIME ON HOW TO PROTECT THE PRESIDENT AND UNITED STATES FROM DOOMSDAY

AMERICA'S DOOMSDAY PLAN premieres Sunday, Nov. 4 at 10 PM E/P

(Los Angeles, Calif.) - If you fear the apocalypse, you're not alone. The United States is working tirelessly to prepare for it. How will the President, the military, the courts and Capitol Hill survive doomsday? The answer is secret - until now.

AMERICA'S DOOMSDAY PLAN, airing Sunday, Nov. 4 at 10 PM E/P on Discovery Channel, received unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to capture the plans and facilities, standing by 24/7, to ensure the homeland survives a disaster. For the first time ever, the U.S. government's top-secret plans are revealed - including the protocols in place to protect the president and the highest levels of government from the most dreaded disasters imaginable.

What happens when all hell breaks loose? The world got a glimpse of our government's response on 9/11, but little is known about what actually happens during a major catastrophe. Government officials and insiders share their knowledge behind the billion dollar world of planning for any disaster imaginable and show the high-security facilities that many Americans don't even know exist.

"I don't want to have a major event and no longer have a government," said Damon Penn, FEMA's assistant administrator of the national continuity programs who is featured in the program. "I've got to be ready so that that never happens. It's all about preserving our way of life regardless of what the circumstances are."

AMERICA'S DOOMSDAY PLAN will take viewers inside the elaborate multi-billion dollar network of bunkers, command centers and the President's Doomsday Plane designed to keep him in command even on Armageddon. It will venture 2,000 feet deep into Cheyenne Mountain - America's impenetrable Command Center -- where the military bunkers down to monitor global skies for any dangers to national security. The episode explains how we've managed to outsmart the country's most fearsome enemies - and shares insight on how we continue to prepare for the worst.

AMERICA'S DOOMSDAY PLAN is produced by Partisan Pictures for Discovery Channel. John Cavanagh served as the Executive Producer for Discovery Channel and Andrew Jackson is Executive Vice President of Production and Development.
