"Doomsday Castle" is a reality docu-series on National Geographic Channel (NGC) that is a spin-off of "Doomsday Preppers."

Castles have been hailed throughout history as the ultimate homes for kings and noblemen, shielding them from invasion by neighboring enemies. But for American prepper Brent Sr., this relic of medieval times represents survival if his greatest fear comes true — an electromagnetic pulse (EMP), where the power grid completely fails, plunging the country (and eventually the world) into chaos. He's hoping his castle, the ultimate bunker, will bring his family together and protect them if disaster strikes. But first he has to bring his family together to complete the castle ... if they don't destroy each other first!

In the series, Brent Sr. is summoning his children to finish the construction of his enormous, only half-completed castle isolated deep in the Carolina mountains in an undisclosed location, and to test their survival skills to find out if they each have what it takes to survive the coming apocalypse.

Since the premiere of "Doomsday Preppers" in 2011, it seems prepping has taken the country by storm. And recent events such as the Oklahoma tornadoes and Hurricane Sandy offer further reminders that disaster preparedness is not such a crazy idea after all! Whether preparing for natural or manmade disasters, people across the country are taking precautions. But few take it to the extreme of Brent Sr. and his clan. Now, with cameras documenting every step of the process, Brent Sr. and his family struggle to survive not only doomsday, but also each other.

"When the world is in chaos and consumes the world, our family will survive," Brent Sr. explains to his kids. "Generations of [our] family will have a safe haven for retreat."

The apocalypse might shy in comparison to this clash of characters as they try to live and work together to fulfill their father's dream of completing the castle.

"Doomsday Castle" is produced by Sharp Entertainment for National Geographic Channel (NGC). For Sharp Entertainment, executive producers are Matt Sharp and Alan Madison. For NGC, executive producer is Kathleen Cromley; vice president, global development and production is Charlie Parsons; senior vice president, production and development is Noel Siegel; and president is Howard T.
