THE WATCH: America’s Nuclear Mission Revealed - Television Documentary Series
For the first time in television history, THE WATCH: America’s Nuclear Mission Revealed, will detail the incredible world of our nation’s nuclear mission. This documentary series will focus on the people, weapons, and tasks of this extraordinary and virtually unknown military mission. For those Americans who remember the Cold War, they recall a time where the United States and the Soviet Union faced off repeatedly with enormous arsenals of thermonuclear weapons until the early 1990’s; the world has changed rapidly since then. THE WATCH is the first television series that will examine the role of the United States military in preserving global peace amongst the increasing numbers of weapons of mass destruction wielded by both nation-states and terrorist groups.
A multi-episode and multimedia production, THE WATCH will be filmed in docu-follow format featuring the men and women of United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) performing their global mission of nuclear deterrence in the air, on land, and at sea. The danger and gravity of the mission will be conveyed from the perspective of these American military personnel, most of whom average only 28 years old. Their authentic personal stories, told from both in their homes with their families and at work embedded in their mission, will be an unprecedented reveal to the global television audience. Each episode will build on the preceding ones as the series captures the extreme pressures endured by the American men and women responsible for executing the single most important military mission on the planet. The project is currently under the Department of Defense review and approval process.
