The Event Begins Tonight
New sci-fi conspiracy thriller, The Event, premieres tonight in the UK on Channel 4.
In American the fifth episode aired this week, so the UK is a good few weeks behind. To make up for that though, Channel 4 are showing the first two episodes. From then on, it will singles every Friday.
Having watched the first few episodes, it’s worth a look for fans of shows like Lost and 24.
Below are the Synopsis for both episodes.
101. Pilot (airing tonight at 9pm on Channel 4)
Sean stumbles into a national conspiracy after his girlfriend Leila disappears from a Caribbean cruise.
Elsewhere, President Elias Martinez is scheduled to announce the release of a group of detainees led by Sophia Maguire – despite the disapproval of his Director of National Intelligence, Blake Sterling.
Their futures are on a collision course in a global conspiracy that could ultimately change the fate of humankind.
102. To Keep Us Safe (airing tonight at 10pm on Channel 4)
As the shockwave of the plane crash dissipates, President Martinez’s staff must work quickly to assess what happened and how to respond. Director of National Intelligence, Blake Sterling locks down Sophia for interrogation.
The conspiracy widens, engulfing FBI Agent Collier and Carter, a mercenary with questionable ties. Meanwhile, a shadowy figure, Thomas, emerges with knowledge of the detainees and their plan.
