The special will examine how the 12-story Champlain Towers in Surfside, Fla., suddenly collapsed in June, killing 98 people and prompting a structural review of coastal buildings in South Florida.

When Buildings Collapse: Disaster in Surfside will use a team of experts, eyewitness accounts, user-generated footage, news archives and CGI animation to give a full account of the tragedy. The special will also look at the rescue and recovery efforts along with what factors may have contributed to the collapse.

Discovery will then premiere a three-episode limited series on the breakdown of the global supply chain titled Out of Stock: Supply Chain Crisis on Dec. 18 at 8 p.m. EST.

The limited series will showcase how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the global supply chain from manufacturing, shipping, transporting and stocking shelves.
