Litton's Weekend Adventure Adds New Series 'Rescue Heroes' Starting January 5, 2019

December 20, 2019 (Charleston, SC) – Litton Entertainment announced today the addition of RESCUE HEROES, which will premiere on Saturday, January 5, 2019. The show joins Litton’s Weekend Adventure, the multiple Daytime Emmy-winning educational/informational block for teens 13-16 -- and appealing to the whole family -- airing Saturdays on ABC Stations nationwide.

RESCUE HEROES, hosted by Ginger Zee, ABC News’ Chief Meteorologist, showcases the stories of men and women who brave natural and manmade disasters with the goal of rescuing victims and helping restore their lives. Ginger reports on extreme weather events and provides takeaways about disaster awareness and preparation. Each week, viewers will witness first-hand the worst of nature but also the best of humanity. RESCUE HEROES provides an up-close look at natural disasters --including hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, and floods -- to help viewers understand the causes and science behind these events, and showcases heroic first responders whose vital restoration efforts help rebuild lives and communities.

“We are thrilled to welcome RESCUE HEROES and Ginger Zee to Litton’s Weekend Adventure, a Saturday morning television destination for teens and families seeking smart, inspiring programming. With Ginger’s scientific pedigree and dedication to telling compelling stories, we know our audiences are in good hands,” commented Dave Morgan, CEO and President of Litton Entertainment.

RESCUE HEROES is coproduced by BELFOR Property Restoration, the world’s largest disaster recovery company restoring homes, businesses and communities following manmade or natural disasters. “We are excited to celebrate heroic first responders and the resilient communities around the world,” said Sheldon Yellen, CEO of BELFOR Property Restoration. “We are humbled and honored to recognize the true heroes among us in the aftermath of disasters – and we can’t wait to share their stories!”
