About The Hot Zone
In 1989, in a scientific facility outside Washington, DC, the deadly Ebola virus made its first known appearance on US soil. The finding — and eventual containment — of this lethal filovirus, which had a fatality rate of up to 90 percent at the time, was thanks to a group of courageous scientists and soldiers led by Lieutenant Colonel Nancy Jaax. National Geographic’s six-part limited series THE HOT ZONE, inspired by the true events detailed in Richard Preston’s international best-seller of the same name, shares the harrowing tale of a global crisis that never was.
The network has given the greenlight to a second season of the disease-centered drama, focusing on the anthrax attacks of 2001. “Hot Zone” hails from Touchstone Television (a division of Disney Television Studios), 20th Television, ABC Signature and Scott Free Productions. Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson are both set to return as executive producers and showrunners for the second installment.
