Inspired by the real-world issues presented in Fortitude, the new drama starring Stanley Tucci and Michael Gambon, Pivot TV and EcoHealth Alliance have teamed up to create Investigate “Fortitude,” a nine-part video series, hosted by Jacob Soboroff, that explores the real-life science behind the show. Through interviews with top scientists—epidemiologists, ecologists, evolutionary biologists, and Arctic experts—Investigate “Fortitude”uncovers how the unintentional effects of climate change lead to important, unexpected, and fascinating realities.
The third episode of Investigate “Fortitude,” inspired by the moment in the third installment of Fortitude where Markus explains why one cannot die in Fortitude to DCI Morton (Stanley Tucci) kicks off a conversation regarding hypothetical situations in which freezing temperatures can potentially preserve animal carcasses and, as a result of melting ice caps, resurrect thousand-year old viruses in today's day and age.
