WPBS to Broadcast Season 2 of Political Thriller: COBRA

WATERTOWN, NY; July 7, 2022 – Given the recent real-world events in Europe, the return of political thriller COBRA couldn’t be more timely. Season 2 premieres Sunday, July 10th at 10:00 pm on WPBS-TV.

In COBRA: CYBERWAR we find a Britain in trouble. Following years of political instability and a fractured relationship with the world’s superpowers, this is a nation and a government on the back foot, and one we now see struck by a major disaster without simple solutions. As the government scramble to combat a new, invisible threat they are forced to question everything they thought they knew about our relationship with the rest of the world. New allegiances are formed, new enemies discovered, and every piece of willpower, nerve and courage will be required to face this new and overwhelming foe. Exploring themes of authenticity versus deception, control versus liberty and the value of the truth when all else has been lost, COBRA: CYBERWAR is a thrilling series which asks what you would be willing to sacrifice for the survival of your country.
