CBS ANNOUNCES "CATEGORY 7: END OF THE WORLD," A NEW FOUR-HOUR EVENT MINI-SERIES THAT WILL BE BROADCAST SUNDAY, NOV. 6 AND SUNDAY, NOV. 13 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK
CATEGORY 7: END OF THE WORLD, a new four-hour event mini-series by the same team behind the successful "Category 6: Day of Destruction" mini-series, will be broadcast as the "CBS Sunday Movie" on Sunday, Nov. 6 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) and Sunday, Nov. 13 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
CATEGORY 7: END OF THE WORLD (four hours) begins where "Category 6: Day of Destruction" ended as the ultimate superstorm continues to build in size. As the disastrous storm gathers even more strength and begins to ravage the rest of the world, a television evangelist, preying on the fears of a storm battered nation, begins to broadcast alarming warnings of epic biblical plagues. As his predictions begin to come true, the deadly storm continues to wreak havoc worldwide, culminating over Washington, D.C.
"Category 6: Day of Destruction" was the 2004-2005 season's most watched (18.01m) and highest rated mini-series in households (11.4/17), adults 18-49 (5.6/14) and adults 25-54 (7.4/16).
CATEGORY 7: END OF THE WORLD is being produced by von Zerneck/Sertner Films. Robert M. Sertner and Frank von Zerneck ("Scott Turow's Reversible Errors," "The Elizabeth Smart Story," "We Were the Mulvaneys") are the executive producers. Dick Lowry ("Category 6: Day of Destruction," "Attila") is directing from a script by Roger Soffer and Christian Ford ("Slow Burn"). Randy Sutter and Leslie Belzberg are the producers; Craig Weiss and Glenn Campbell ("Category 6: Day of Destruction," "Frank Herbert's Children of Dune," "From the Earth to the Moon") are the visual effects supervisors.
