What will you do when the power goes out?

We have a crisis.. a global climate crisis. With our daily lifestyles growing increasingly dependent on technology, have you ever considered what would happen to you if all that power we took for granted suddenly went out?

BLACKOUT aka POWERLESS is a ground-breaking original format centered on a once-in-a-lifetime social experiment designed to see what happens to a group of strangers when all the electricity disappears from society.

With one group based in a rustic self-sustaining farm, how will they adapt differently than their counterparts living in a technology dependent modern house? Blackout will analyze how we respond to crisis and what we must do to survive the Blackout.
