TNT Orders Michael Moore Live from the Apocalypse, New Non-Fiction Series from Oscar(R) Winner Michael Moore

Primetime Satirical Series to Tackle Washington, Wall Street and More

Turner's TNT has greenlit Michael Moore Live from the Apocalypse (working title), a new non-fiction series from Oscar(R) and Emmy(R) winner Michael Moore (Bowling for Columbine, TV Nation). Set to premiere in the late fall, the series will pull back the curtain on everything from Washington politics to Wall Street shenanigans. Moore will direct and star in the series, as well as executive-produce with frequent collaborator and Oscar-nominee Meghan O'Hara (SiCKO). Veteran producer Nick McKinney (The Daily Show, 30 Days) will produce.

Michael Moore Live from the Apocalypse is part of TNT's ongoing shift to more premium scripted dramas and high-profile documentary original programming. In the series, Moore and his merry band of journalists, pranksters and citizen-rebels will fearlessly go where the mainstream media and political hacks of both parties are afraid to go. The series will dive deep into the abyss of Washington, stalk the scions of Wall Street and crash the playgrounds of America's wealthiest 1% - and they'll do it by not just flying over the Heartland. No one in power will be spared either the unblinking lens of Moore's camera nor the sting of his pointed satire.

"Live from the Apocalypse will be a raucous gathering place for millions of our fellow citizens in desperate need of a break from the screaming pundits and the purveyors of 'alternative facts,'" said Moore. "Our show will be dangerous and relentless. And it will be the destination for those who want to know what's really going on and what they might be able to do about it."

Moore is considered a pioneer in the modern era of primetime television satire. His TV Nation won the first-ever primetime Emmy for a nonfiction series, with every season of TV Nation and his subsequent The Awful Truth being nominated for the same primetime Emmy. Both shows are considered to be the inspiration for similar work that followed, using humor to inform the public about the issues of the day.

"Michael Moore has proven himself to be a master at exposing the truth behind American politics, Wall Street abuses and economic injustice," said Michael Bloom, senior vice president of unscripted series and specials for TNT and TBS. "His powerful and unique voice combines truth and humor on all sides of an issue."
