|An earthquake reaching a 10.5 magnitude on the richter scale, strikes the west coast of the U.S. And canada. A large portion of land falls into the ocean, and the situation is worsened by aftershocks and tsunami.|
Editor's NoteFirst appearing as an NBC original miniseries, 10.5 stars Emmy- and Golden Globe-winner Kim Delaney (NYPD BLUE) as Dr. Samantha Hill, an academic earthquake research scientist from a university in Washington State. When an earthquake strikes California, breaking all records and surpassing measurement on the Richter scale, it is up to Hill to apply her contested theories to reality, saving the West Coast from imminent destruction. While her controversial ideas and efficient take-charge attitude cause infighting among her fellow scientists, President Paul Hollister (Emmy- and Golden Globe-winner Beau Bridges) and his team scramble to evacuate the coast before it is effectively shattered by the natural disaster. The rest of the star-powered cast includes Ivan Sergei (CROSSING JORDAN), Dulé Hill (THE WEST WING), John Schneider (SMALLVILLE), Kaley Cuoco (8 SIMPLE RULES...FOR DATING MY TEENAGE DAUGHTER), and Fred Ward (SWEET HOME ALABAMA).
