Los Angeles -- The Weather Channel Cos. has acquired the U.S. rights to the docuseries Tipping Points exploring our changing climate system, the network announced at the TCA press tour here Thursday.

The global production will follow a group of scientists as they travel off the grid to explore the tipping points making our weather systems more extreme and unpredictable like the collapse of the Greenland ice sheet, dieback of the Amazon rainforest and the total melting of the Himalayan icecap glaciers.

Tipping Points will premiere in October 2013 with six one-hour episodes. Polar explorer and climate journalist Bernice Notenboom will host the series, joined by environmental scientists in each episode.
