Season 1

Power & Ice: Subzero temperatures, winds at over 100 mph, and 50,000 volts of electrical current.

These are the work conditions in one of the most dangerous jobs on the planet, but just another day at the office for an elite few: Alaska Power Linemen.

These highly skilled workers put their lives at risk every day to bring power and heat to the furthest reaches of America’s last frontier… or die trying. Line work in Alaska is an ultra-competitive, multi-million dollar business.

This job comes with life or death stakes – for both the lineman building and repairing the grid, and for the people they risk their lives to save; when the power goes out during a big winter storm, freezing to death is just around the corner.

Power & Ice will showcase the dramatic daily efforts of three fiercely competitive Alaska power companies. They repair, build, and maintain the fragile grid slung across the mountains, cliffs, valleys, and ice rivers.
