Oklahoma tornado disaster to be focus of 1-hour special 'instamentary'
The tragic EF5 tornado that ripped through Oklahoma City and Moore, Oklahoma on May 20th is now going to be explored in a TV special. Discovery Channel is airing "Mile Wide Tornado: Oklahoma Disaster" (working title, by the way) on Sun. June 2 at 10:00 p.m.
For the special, Discovery partners with Pioneer Productions – the production company known for capturing weather at its most extreme ranging from Japan’s 2011 tsunami to Hurricane Katrina – with this new “instamentary.” Pioneer Productions has created over 50 hours of Tornado programming, and Discovery’s new, one-hour special provides in-depth scientific analysis of the storm via on-the-ground footage, tornado-tracking CGI and eye-witness accounts of one of the deadliest tornadoes in the last decade.
