Cineflix’s Mayday Starts Production on Season 15

November 11, 2014

Cineflix announced the start of production on season 15 of its long running hit series Mayday (Air Crash Investigation). Cineflix is producing 10 one-hour episodes, bringing the series total to an incredible 130 episodes. Mayday airs on Discovery Channel and Canal D in Canada and on National Geographic Channel internationally.

Riveting stories featured in season 15 include the investigation of Asiana Airlines Flight 214 which crashed on its final approach into San Francisco International Airport – the first fatal accident involving a Boeing 777; the circumstances surrounding the crash of a DC-6 carrying UN Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld, en route to cease-fire negotiations; and the fatal UPS Airlines Flight 6 cargo plane crash, which resulted in more than thirty recommendations for safety improvements.

“We are thrilled about the international success of Mayday and to be kicking off our 15th season,” said Alex Bystram, Executive Producer, Cineflix. “While every episode features the obvious tragedy of an aviation disaster, each story offers invaluable lessons that help make flying safer for us all. We’re extremely proud of this series.”
 
Since its debut in 2003, Mayday has taken viewers behind the scenes of the world’s most catastrophic aviation disasters in search of the clues that can prevent similar tragedies from happening again. Based on cockpit voice recorders, accident reports, and insider accounts by the investigators themselves, every episode also features state-of-the-art CGI, and gripping reenactments.

Mayday is a Cineflix (Mayday 15) Inc. production, in association with Discovery Channel Canada, National Geographic Channels International, and Canal D. Executive producer for Cineflix is Alex Bystram. Mayday is distributed internationally by Cineflix Rights, and has sold into 129 territories worldwide.
