You probably haven't heard of BYUtv before, but the channel — operated by Brigham Young University — is found in more than 50 million households across the country (including on DirecTV and various cable systems). Now, BYUtv is looking to get into the scripted series game, starting with the Cold War-era Granite Flats.
The show, which airs Sundays at 9/8c, centers on a group of unlikely young heroes in the town of Granite Flats, Colo., where they uncover a secret bigger than anyone expected. Executive producer Scott Swofford says the show was inspired by the real-life Project MKUltra, a human research project conducted by the CIA. With Season 2 of the series underway, Swofford answered our showrunner survey to explain why Granite Flats shouldn't stay a secret much longer.
