In the final part in this epic mini-series, Kirk (James Van der Beek – Dawson’s Creek) realises that the motives and the loyalties of authorities are not in his favour. The extreme weather events are in full force and hammer down on every corner of the earth and it’s a race against time to shut down the system and save humanity. The cast also includes Trent Williams (Everwood), Teri Polo (Meet the Parents), John Larroquette (Boston Legal) and Luke Perry (Beverly Hills, 90210).

Part 1

Hold on tight as we launch the first part of this exciting mini-series starring (from Dawson’s Creek fame) James Van Der Beek. Software billionaire Robert Terrell wants to change the world with an ingenious plan to control the weather. But his insane experiments threaten to destroy it when the weather goes wild, hurtling the planet toward destruction. Only the scientist behind the original plan, and a renegade news anchor, have the guts and the brains to save the planet, and reverse the storm’s devastating path of destruction. Featuring a cast of television favourites including John Larroquette (Boston Legal), Luke Perry (Beverly Hills, 90210) and Marisol Nichols (24), The Storm is the ultimate tale of man against nature and an epic miniseries event posing a tantalizing and terrifying what-if scenario.

Prime’s 2011 season launch includes more from their steady accumulation of programming assets that has helped the channel to successive years of 30%+ growth and unlike TV2, there are new local shows on the cards.  You probably won’t be seeing much of that NZ On Air logo at the ends of their credits either.
