'Perfect Storm' in the forecast

October 21, 2009|Associated Press

The Weather Channel plans to show movies for the first time in its 27-year history, and it's easy to guess which one is leading off.

"The Perfect Storm," of course.

The George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg movie about a horrific storm off the New England coast will air on Oct. 30, the 18th anniversary of the actual storm. Network executives had been thinking about adding movies, and the timing proved too good to pass up, said Geoffrey Darby, the network's chief programmer.

"The Perfect Storm" begins a four-week period in which the Weather Channel will try some Friday night movies. The films are either weather-themed or have plots in which weather plays a key role, such as "Misery," Darby said.
