Channel 4 has Blackout

Channel 4 in the UK has commissioned a feature-length drama exploring what would happen if there was a cyber attack on Britain’s national electricity grid.



Blackout will combine real user-generated footage, fictional scenes, CCTV archive and news reports to plot the first five days immediately after a nationwide power cut experienced by a group of characters struggling to feed and protect themselves and their families.

Produced by Raw TV, the film is directed by Ben Chanan and executive produced by Richard Bond.

Blackout will be broadcast in September, 2013.
