National Geographic UK Sets Premiere Date For ‘The Hot Zone’

The Julianna Margulies fronted thriller series The Hot Zone will receive its UK premiere on National Geographic UK on Tuesday September 10th at 9pm, it has been announced.

The Hot Zone tells the story of the origins of Ebola, a highly infectious and deadly virus from the central African rain forest, and its arrival on U.S. soil in 1989. When this killer suddenly appeared in monkeys in a scientific research lab in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., there was no known cure.

A heroic U.S. Army scientist, Lieutenant Colonel Nancy Jaax, working with a secret military specialized team put her life on the line to head off the outbreak before it spread to the human population. The six episode drama series is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios, Lynda Obst Productions and Scott Free Productions and stars Julianna Margulies, Noah Emmerich, Topher Grace, Liam Cunningham, James D’Arcy, Paul James, Robert Wisdom and Robert Sean Leonard.
