Brett Ratner and James Packer’s RatPac Entertainment last night announced In Harm’s Way, a scripted multi-platform project inspired by the United Nations’ work around the world. Created by emerging British filmmaker David Raymond, the event-driven anthology mini-series will dramatize true stories of UN staff who risk their lives working to ensure that the organization fulfills its mandate. Each season will focus on a specific crisis in a different country with the first season, written by Raymond, to be set during the 1999 East Timor crisis. Future seasons will be directed by different sets of filmmakers and cover new topics.
In Harms Way is the first collaboration of its kind between the United Nations and the entertainment industry, and was celebrated at private event at Hilhaven Lodge in Beverly Hills that included an appearance by Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon.
