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 ninth and final episode of Investigate “Fortitude” is inspired by the shocking discovery of the parasitic wasps in the season finale of Fortitude, as Natalie walks Markuss through the larvae's life cycle - from thawing in the permafrost to finding human hosts and spreading throughout the town. This discovery sparks conversation on the real-life prevalence of infectious diseases moving from animal to human populations and the ramifications of disease outbreaks around the world.
