WATCH: Windstream News on ‘Windstream’ segment, featuring new ‘Falling Skies’ teaser
Windstream is launching a new “Falling Stars” teaser to promote its upcoming documentary “Falls Skies.”
Windstream, which launched in May and airs at 10 p.m.
ET on Monday nights, is partnering with The CW and the BBC to make the documentary.
The film is set in the early 1900s and tells the story of a young woman who is stranded on a deserted island after being shot by the British army.
The film is a homage to the real-life “fallen skies” incident in London in 1918, when a British soldier was killed and several others wounded in a deadly air raid.
“The world has changed dramatically since 1918 and the skies are a much safer place than they were when this film was made,” said Jim Wittenberg, Windstream’s president and CEO.
“We have created a cinematic journey to explain that transformation in a fresh way.”
The film tells the tale of “a young girl named Alice who discovers she is the daughter of a military pilot and is on a journey to save the world from the threat of the falling star.”
The teaser is an eight-minute short, which you can watch above.
It features a montage of clips from the film and the trailer.
Wittenberg said the company was trying to give the audience a sense of the scope of the film, which includes interviews with witnesses and other elements of the story.
The teaser also features a short documentary called “Fails Stars” from The CW.
The short film is part of the new documentary series, which premiered last week on the CW’s “The Originals.”
The new series follows a group of young people who are living on a remote island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean in the United States.
They are called “fallers,” who live off the land and have no contact with the outside world.
The series has been described as an “alternative history” and follows the lives of the group as they grow up.
It will premiere in late 2018 on the ABC.
Writtenberg said Windstream has a long history of making documentaries and that the Windstream TV series has become a key part of that process.
“We’re thrilled to partner with The British Broadcasting Corporation and The BBC to deliver the world’s first cinematic experience of the true fall of the fallen star,” Wittenburg said.
“The world hasn’t changed much in a century.
It’s still a very dangerous place.”
