Set your TiVos, kids 10.5: Apocalypse is coming May 21 and 23rd to NBC.
The plot, believe it or not, is even more ludicrous:
In a desperate bid to save lives – and the country – President Hollister (Beau Bridges) calls once again upon one of the nation’s top seismologists, controversial scientist Dr. Samantha Hill (Kim Delaney) and her supervisor and former boyfriend Dr. Jordan Fisher (David Cubitt), to interpret the latest onslaught of quakes. At a loss for how to interpret this continued seismic and now volcanic disruption, Hill re-discovers her seismologist father’s (Frank Langella, as Dr. Earl Hill) much-discredited hypothesis from years past that if correct, predicts even greater ruin and a complete altering of the North American Continent – a Continental Divide of the land mass.
This is going to be spectacularly awful. I’d better start stocking up on popcorn and vodka…
