Munich, September 15, 2011. SevenOne International has secured distribution rights to National Geographic Channel’s series “The Indestructibles“ after its premiere on National Geographic Channels globally. The ten one-hour episodes have premiered on National Geographic’s U.S. channel, and will premiere this November on National Geographic Channel internationally. The specials were broadcasted on Fox Television as well. “The Indestructibles“ is produced by Storyhouse Productions.
As Axel Böhm, Director of Regional Sales and International Fiction Acquisition for SevenOne International, puts it: “The Indestructibles” is a one-of-a-kind series. With its unique combination of spectacular accidents, real-life footage, and visually captivating experiments, this outstanding show will fascinate viewers around the world.”
“The Indestructibles” investigates ten real-life disastrous incidents to explain how someone could survive the seemingly unsurvivable. Deconstructing footage from each incident, we’ll reveal the hard and fast scientific principles behind these cases that defy the laws of probability. We’ll hear harrowing accounts from eyewitnesses and victims to get a 360° look at what really happened, including a skydiver who falls from almost three miles up, a helicopter split in half high above city streets, an SUV that rolls over a pedestrian, a zoo keeper attacked by hungry lions and a tourist pulled off a cliff by violent Hawaiian waves.
Our cameras will follow survivors as they search for answers to explain why they are still alive. Using detailed analysis and hands-on experiments, we’ll gain insights from experts and investigators to understand the mix of luck, coincidence and hard science behind each case. Survivors will finally understand how and why they were able to defy the odds and live to tell their tale.
