Premiering on Smithsonian Channel this Sunday, October 15 at 8p and 9p, respectively, are the ninth season of Air Disasters and new series Make It Out Alive. Of the latter, John Cavanagh, exec producer, Smithsonian Channel says, “It’s incredible to work on a series like Make It Out Alive. Everyday people caught in the middle of unfolding disaster – the drama is all there already. You just let people tell their stories,” he says. “What we did want to do a little differently with this series was put viewers in the shoes of those people as it happened – to be there in the wrong place at the wrong time when disaster strikes. Suddenly, you find yourself facing along with them the split-second decisions that make the difference between life and death wondering if, or how, they are going to make it out alive. For me, it’s the way these individual stories–emotional, harrowing, heroic, and sometimes tragic–are cast against the epic backdrop of these huge disasters that makes the series so compelling.”
