DISCOVERY CHANNEL'S "MILITIA RISING" PROFILES AMERICA'S TOP MILITIA FORCES PREPPED FOR SOCIETY'S WORST-CASE-SCENARIOS

- One-Hour Discovery Channel Special Airs on Wednesday, October 24 at 10 PM ET/PT -

(NEW YORK) - If the world as you know it falls apart, will you rise up to fight? Discovery Channel's new one-hour documentary follows citizen militia, survival and prepper groups in Arizona, Florida and Indiana who are preparing for the worst. After what they consider to be inadequate government responses to tragedies like Hurricane Katrina, these groups believe that disaster will strike - and they must be ready to protect themselves and restore order.

Natural disasters, government collapse and civil war may not be the first thing on the average American's mind, but members of the "Watchmen of America" militia group are ready to fight back. MILITIA RISING will show viewers how local militias prepare to survive difficult circumstances including massive power outages and civil unrest, and follow them as they learn self-defense tactics to protect their families.

The featured groups include:

· Watchmen of Florida - Living under the constant threat of hurricanes, members are aware that the government may not be able to assist in an emergency. Leaders train new recruits and practice home rescues to bring family members to safety.

· Watchmen of Indiana - Anticipating a nuclear disaster, members of this militia prepare for a nuclear meltdown.

· Watchmen of America, Arizona Guard - This group will not wait for chaos and proactively aim to help the government protect the U.S./Mexican border - especially from the drug cartels.

MILITIA RISING is produced for Discovery Channel by Magilla Entertainment. For Magilla Entertainment, Executive Producers are Matthew Ostrom, Brian Flanagan, Laura Palumbo Johnson and Eric Leemon. For Discovery Channel, Executive Producer is French Horwitz and Associate Producer is Paige McKenzie.
