Next Episode of The Hot Zone is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
Based on the eponymous international bestseller by Richard Preston, The Hot Zone recounts the terrifying true story of the origins of the Ebola virus, a highly infectious, deadly virus from the central African rain forest and its first arrival on U.S. soil. In 1989, when this killer suddenly appears in chimpanzees in a scientific lab in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. — a stone's throw away from the White House — there is no known cure. A heroic U.S. Army veterinarian, working with a secret military SWAT team, puts herself in mortal peril when she tries to head off the outbreak before it spreads to the human population. The Hot Zone is a dramatic, hair-raising account of a rare and lethal virus and its impact on the human race.
Lt. Col. Nancy Jaax is a wife and mother of two with one of the most dangerous jobs in the world, handling the world's deadliest viruses. In 1989, she tests a sample and fears it may be in the deadliest category of viruses.
In the USAMRIID lab, Lt. Col. Nancy Jaax and Dr. Peter Jahrling test new specimens and come face to face with the virus. Jaax is determined to figure out the source and brings in her mentor, reclusive Ebola expert Dr. Wade Carter.
When varying agencies disagree on how to handle Nancy Jaax's discovery, she quickly realizes there are few protocols in place for containing a deadly virus on U.S. soil, as an employee at the monkey research facility falls ill.
Nancy Jaax begins to lead a team from USAMRIID, while her husband searches for a way to protect his wife. Meanwhile, Jaax believes her mentor, Dr. Wade Carter, may have a different agenda, while more employees are tested for possible exposure.
Inside the primate research facility, unforeseen dangers arise. Nancy Jaax works tirelessly in Biosafety Level 4 to find out why the virus is behaving differently in human victims than expected.
An already volatile situation inside the infected research facility boils to a head. Jaax ultimately must face the ramifications of trying to balance her dangerous career and her loving family.
