DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery's press release, June 2010) What would you do in the wake of a global catastrophe? Even if you survived it, could you survive the aftermath? Discovery Channel puts these questions to the test in THE COLONY, returning Tuesdays at 10PM ET/PT beginning July 27 for an all-new season filled with high stakes, incredible emotion and extraordinary challenges. THE COLONY is not a competition, but a controlled experiment that places ordinary people from all walks of life in a simulated post-catastrophic environment and pushes them to their limits, in an ultimate test of personal will and survival skills. Season two of THE COLONY introduces viewers to a new group of volunteers with differing backgrounds, skills and personalities, to bear witness to how these colonists will survive and rebuild in a world without electricity, running water, government or outside communication. Over the course of 10 episodes, the colonists - who include a construction foreman, teacher, carpenter and auto mechanic - must work to utilize and strengthen their exploration, technology and survival skills in ways they've never had to before. THE COLONY features on-going commentary and input from experts in homeland security, engineering, psychology and the medical community, with expertise and insight into what the future could look like after a biological disaster.
