Plot Synopsis

Based on Garrett M. Graff's 2017 book, "Raven Rock: The Story of the U.S. Government's Secret Plan to Save Itself -- While the Rest of Us Die" and narrated by Jeffrey Wright, this six-episode docuseries that explores the chasm between the powerful and the rest of us by exposing a hidden world inside the United States consisting of an incredible physical and legal network of secret places and procedures that began being constructed during the Cold War and continue to function to this day. It's ongoing mission? Save the elites in the event of a cataclysmic disaster -- including nuclear armageddon. WHILE THE REST OF US DIE: SECRETS OF AMERICA'S SHADOW GOVERNMENT reveals how the U.S. government has spent trillions of dollars in the name of national security to create everything from hidden underground cities, a secret air force, a secret monetary system and even a classified plan to suspend democracy itself, all of which ultimately serve the interests of a small few. This world, loaded with corruption, favoritism, nepotism and insiderism, has underscored a pervasive truth of American life over the past 70 years: when disaster strikes, you're on your own. The series explores how this world allows for some of the greatest American injustices -- whether it's the current COVID-19 disaster, the neglect of our military service members, or Hurricane Katrina victims being allowed to languish by the Department of Homeland Security -- to not only go unchecked but serve the needs of an elite few, resulting in one pointed message: you paid for it, but this secret world is not built for you. WHILE THE REST OF US DIE: SECRETS OF AMERICA'S SHADOW GOVERNMENT features a cast of preeminent political figures including Jeh Johnson (former Secretary of Homeland Security), Richard Clarke (former National Coordinator for Security, Infrastructure, Protection, andCounter-terrorism) and national security experts such as Malcolm Nance (former U.S. intelligence officer), Elizabeth Goitien (Co-Director, Brennan Center for Justice) and Paul Rieckhoff (founder, Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America), this explosive series unmasks how the elite are saved and normal people die when catastrophe strikes -- because that's how the government wants it.

The series opener, "Doomsday & The President," chronicles how the President got the power to rip up the Constitution and blow up the world.
