Weird tim­ing

Rappahannock News - - FROM PAGE ONE • EVENTS -

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.”
