“SPLIT SECOND DECISION” PREMIERES SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12
NEW YORK, NEW YORK – Featuring true stories of people faced with life-altering decisions and mere seconds to make a choice, “Split Second Decision” brings viewers through each harrowing step of a crisis and challenges them to make life or death judgments in real time. Narrated by NBC’s Jeff Rossen, “Split Second Decision” is the second series presented via the MSNBC ORIGINALS banner and debuts on Saturday, November 12th at 9 PM ET on MSNBC.
In the first episode of “Split Second Decision” viewers are asked to decide what they would do when confronted with impossible-to-imagine scenarios such as: escaping a capsized ferry boat in the middle of the sea; staring down an armed intruder; desperately trying to avoid a swerving, impaired driver; navigating surging floodwaters; surviving a wild forest fire or the sudden explosion of batteries. Expert assessment of each possible outcome lets the audience know if they’ve made the right ‘split second decision.’
