SALVATION Preview: Saving the World From an Asteroid


CBS is tackling a possible world-ending disaster in the new summer series SALVATION. In the 13 episode event series, an MIT grad student and a tech superstar tell a low-level Pentagon official some devastating news — an asteroid is six months away from colliding with the Earth. But….is there a way to stop it?

“SALVATION is the type of fast-paced, dramatic ride that viewers look for in a summer event series,” said Glenn Geller, President, CBS Entertainment. “We’re excited to launch another high concept, highly promotable show with great auspices that adds to our roster of year-round, original scripted programming.”

SALVATION stars Santiago Cabrera, Jennifer Finnigan, Charlie Rowe, Jacqueline Byers, Rachel Drance, Shazi Raja and Ian Anthony Dale.

SALVATION will premiere on Wednesday, July 12 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
