CNBC to air film about natural gas

November 23, 2010
Gasland isn't the only documentary focusing on natural gas production. At 8 p.m. tonight, CNBC will air Haynesville, a documentary that tracks the lives of three people affected by the big Haynesville Shale natural gas field in Louisiana and East Texas.

From the Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

The one-hour film will be repeated at 9 p.m., 11 p.m. and midnight, and again at 9 p.m. Sunday.

The full title is Haynesville: A Nation's Hunt for an Energy Future. The film outlines potential economic benefits of the field and shale gas development in the U.S., as well as concerns of residents it could directly affect.

The three "stars" of the film are Kassi Fitzgerald, a single mother and community activist who tries to help secure a favorable gas lease agreement and environmental protections for the rural area where she lives; Reegis Richard, a pastor who uses drilling proceeds to benefit his growing church and expand education and recreation opportunities for youths; and Mike Smith, a self-described "country boy" and lover of the outdoors who marvels at his new millionaire status while trying to keep his rural-oriented life on an even keel.
