Latest Weather Channel Original ‘I Am Unstoppable’ Debuts Wednesday (Update: Nope, Oct. 22)
“I Am Unstoppable,” a new six-episode web series from The Weather Channel, will premiere next Tuesday, October 22, on Weather.com. The show tells the stories of six outdoor athletes who have overcome extraordinary obstacles to become champions in their respective sports. The featured athletes include Spencer West, a man who was born without legs who achieved the remarkable feat of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, and Sarah Reinertsen, the first full-leg amputee to complete the Ironman World Championship.
The series was produced by Weather Films, the original programming arm of The Weather Channel/Company, in partnership with Peabody- and Emmy-winning “60 Minutes” producer Shawn Efran.
The Weather Company debuted Weather Films, which oversees other original web series like “Brink” and “Destination Uncharted,” during its Newfront presentation earlier this year. During the event, the company also previewed its first six original web series, which includes “I Am Unstoppable,” “Brink,” and “Destination Uncharted.”
This article has been amended to reflect “I Am Unstoppable”‘s new premiere date, which was moved from Oct. 16 to Oct. 22 due to “unforeseeable delays.”Tags: 60 Minutes, CBS, Digital Content Newfronts, Emmys, I Am Unstoppable, newfronts, Shawn Efran, The Weather Channel, The Weather Company, Weather Films
