Harking back to Orson Welles' 1938 radio broadcast The War of the Worlds, this gripping drama about antinuclear terrorists threatening to destroy Charleston, S.C. is presented in the form of a minute-by-minute television newscast. Ed Flanders and Gail Strickland play the news team, while Roxanne Hart, Christopher Allport, David Clennon and David Rasche co-star.
