(Albuquerque, NM) Tuesday, July 9, 2013 - Reelz today announced the U.S. premieres for three original movies CAT. 8, Delete and Exploding Sun from Sonar Entertainment's End of the World Series. Reelz cranks up the apocalyptic drama all summer long with big stars and blockbuster movie action in three television events starting with CAT. 8 on July 22, 2013 at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT starring Emmy Award(R) nominee Matthew Modine (Jobs, The Dark Knight Rises) depicting the terrifying aftermath of a global defense program gone astray. Next up is the technology nightmare Delete on August 19, 2013 at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT starring Emmy Award(R) winner Seth Green (Family Guy) in which computers become dangerously self-aware and seek to destroy humans. Wrapping up with a bang is Exploding Sun on September 9, 2013 at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT starring David James Elliott (JAG) who races to save humanity after a space shuttle is struck by a solar storm and is put on a collision course for the sun - an event with monumental consequences that could plunge humanity back into the Stone Age.
CAT. 8 premieres on Monday, July 22, 2013 at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT
In CAT. 8, a breakthrough in global defense backfires and the result is a fireball four times the size of Earth streaking toward our planet. With mere hours before the atmosphere ignites and the end of the world begins, only one man - a government outsider and renegade scientist - can reverse this cataclysmic disaster. CAT. 8 stars Emmy Award(R) nominee Matthew Modine (Jobs, The Dark Knight Rises) with Maxim Roy (ReGenesis) and Ted Whittall (Smallville). Will he be able to save the Earth before it's too late? CAT. 8 is directed by Kevin Fair (Smallville) and written by Donald Martin (The Christmas Choir).
Delete premieres on Monday, August 19, 2013 at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT
Delete imagines a disaster in our all too fragile digital world where all computers could become dangerously self-aware with one systematic purpose - to destroy mankind. Faced with possible extinction, there is only one way out - create a second artificial intelligence, just as alive, just as intelligent and just as dangerous. Delete stars Emmy Award(R) winner Seth Green (Family Guy) Keir Gilchrist (United States of Tara), Matt Frewer (Falling Skies, Watchman), Janet Kidder (The Killing), Erin Karpluk (Being Erica), Emmy Award(R) winner and Golden Globe(R) nominee Gil Bellows (True Justice, Ally McBeal) and Ryan Robbins (Sanctuary, Apollo 18). Emmy Award(R) nominee Steve Barron (Merlin, Treasure Island) directs from an original screenplay by Joseph Mallozzi (SGU Stargate Universe) and Paul Mullie (Stargate SG-1).
Exploding Sun premieres on Monday, September 9, 2013 at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT
In Exploding Sun, the first ever commercial space shuttle is struck by a solar storm. The disaster hyper-charges the engine and catapults the ship on a direct course for the sun. But the danger becomes more universal when it's discovered the event will trigger an infinitely larger solar storm that could send Earth back into the Stone Age. Exploding Sun stars David James Elliott (JAG), Anthony Lemke (Blue Mountain State), Natalie Brown (Being Human) and Emmy Award(R) winner Julia Ormond (Temple Grandin). It is directed by Michael Robison (Stephen King's Dead Zone) and written by Jeff Schecter (Strange Days at Blake Holsey High).
