Rappahannock resident Nina May couldn’t have picked a more appropriate time to release the first six episodes of her new television series, Daily Bread, following a year and a half of production.
“We have all been amazed that the day we release our series — which is about a solar flare knocking out electricity around the world — we get hit by a solar flare. The strongest in 10 years. Is that wild?” she says of the production, filmed almost entirely in Rappahannock County and starring several familiar faces like John Hallberg.
Added the official news release from Nina’s team in California: “NASA Records Largest Solar Flare in Nearly a Decade . . . on Premiere Date of Faith-Based, Post Apocalyptic Series.”
“TV doesn't come more topical than this: Just dropped today for streaming is Daily Bread, a new series depicting how a solar flare knocks out the worldwide power grid, forcing people from all walks of life, with all levels of faith in God and government, to search for something to hold onto when they lose their grip on everything they’ve known.
“And even as the show became available for viewing, NASA recorded the biggest real-life solar flare since at least 2006. Fortunately, no immediate damage was felt on Earth, but as scientists wonder what caused it, humans are left to wonder what they'd do if we aren't so fortunate next time.”
