Fire Chasers trailer: Netflix's California wildfire doc series 'a wakeup call for all of us'

Posted on

Netflix’s upcoming documentary series Fire Chasers, about California firefighters combatting increasingly common and severe wildfires, released its first trailer Thursday. The series will explore how climate change, altered vegetation patterns, and drought have made these natural disasters more frequent and more devastating to the landscape and feature graphic time lapses depicting fires eating up stretches of land and emotional testimonials from firefighters and fire victims.

Original Productions (Deadliest Catch) produced the project, which will follow both the Los Angeles County Fire Department and Cal Fire, as well as women at the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation’s “Fire Camp” and two artists documenting through photography and “artifact retrieval.” It will also interview victims of wildfires who have lost their homes to the blazes.

Fire Chasers premieres on Netflix Sept. 8.
