The Weather Channel announced a brand new rescue and recovery series, Fast: Home Rescue. The show follows families whose lives have been devastated by severe weather and natural disasters, and helps them rebuild stronger than before.
The show is being done in partnership with Reach out Worldwide (ROWW), a disaster relief organization founded by the late Paul Walker, star of the Fast and Furious franchise. The Weather Channel works with Cody and Felicia Walker — Paul's brother and sister-in-law and the current leaders of ROWW — to rebuild homes in the most devastated communities.
“This transformative show reveals the destructive nature of tornadoes, fires and floods, while highlighting the powerful recovery stories of each family," said Byron Allen, CEO of Weather Channel parent Allen Media Group. "Viewers will experience many emotions during the 1-hour episodes, from heartbreak, to surprise, to heart-warming moments of triumph.”
The Walkers lead a team of first-responders, military veterans and construction and design professionals who augment local expertise to accelerate relief efforts. Each episode features a different deserving family and each build happens in just five days. Fast: Home Rescue premieres September 17 on The Weather Channel.
