Glenn Beck’s GBTV Orders Post-Apocalyptic Preparedness Reality Series

Former Fox News host Glenn Beck‘s GBTV has ordered its first reality show, and it is a doozy. The program “Independence USA,” follows a dad, Frank Belcastro, as he and his family learn to live “Off the grid,” for when society collapses.

What sorts of things will the Belcastro family be doing? GBTV explains: “[B]uilding a car that runs on wood in case gasoline supplies are interrupted, becoming expert hunters when grocery stores are no longer in existence, and making his own alcohol for barter when the dollar collapses.”

“Independence USA” launches January 18 on GBTV, with new episodes debuting every Wednesday.

Update: It seems GBTV’s “new” show is actually an “old,” show. The same program–then known as “Apocalypse, PA” ran on History last year.
