NBC shuffles summer miniseries

Sci-Fi & Fantasy Television

NBC recently announced the following changes to its summer scheduling:

Meteor now will be telecast on Sunday, July 12, and Sunday, July 19 (9-11 p.m. ET both nights), while The Storm will now air on Sunday, July 26 and Sunday, August 2 (9-11 p.m. ET both nights).

Meteor — which was previously scheduled to be telecast on Sundays, June 7 and 14 (9-11 p.m. ET) – is a new suspenseful four-hour miniseries. In the story, Dr. Lehman (Emmy Award winner Christopher Lloyd, Back to the Future) and Imogene O’Neil (Marla Sokoloff, The Practice) are two scientists who discover that the giant meteor Kassandra has been knocked out of its orbit and is now barreling straight for Earth.

The Storm – which previously was set for broadcast on Sundays, July 19 and 26 (9-11 p.m. ET) — is an epic miniseries event where the changeable forces of nature combine — in the air, on land, in the seas as the world counts down its final, catastrophic hours. Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Treat Williams (Everwood) and James Van Der Beek (Dawson’s Creek) star in this ultimate tale of man against nature.
