GBTV To Premiere Show For American Preppers

There will be no room for crying on a new show for American preppers on Glenn Beck’s television network.

Glenn Beck’s live video network GBTV will premiere a reality show on Jan. 18 that follows a family of American preppers as they attempt to become able to live completely off the grid.

The show, called “Independence U.S.A.,” follows Frank Belcastro and his family as they tackle prepper tasks that would become commonplace in the event of the collapse of civilization. The show documents the family of four struggling with such tasks as identifying the best alternate fuel sources, planning hunting trips to provide all of their own food and making alcohol for barter.

“This show, for me, is a fun and sometimes funny way to get people to open their eyes and see what’s going on,” said Belcastro, in a statement. “Americans are so reliant on the infrastructure around them but when you can create something with your own hands and everybody works as a team, everybody does a part, you can focus on the positive of this.  You can spend time with your family and your community.”

Belcastro and his family have done this before, starring in a similar show called “Apocalypse, PA,” which aired for a short time on History Channel last year.
