The Hot Zone - 6 Part National Geographic series starting May 27th

The Hot Zone will be a fact-based drama, based on the book by Richard Preston, about Ebola.

This is being produced by National Geographic Channel.

Notable actors include Julianna Margulies, Topher Grace, Noah Emmerich, and Liam Cunningham.

Ridley Scott is also listed as an executive producer. He was originally supposed to direct a movie based on The Hot Zone, but it didn't happen.

This is one of my favourite books. Truly frightening, particularly as it is non-fiction. Hopefully the series stays true to the book.

I won't comment on specifics, as I don't want to spoil anything for those that are not familiar with the story.

The 6 part series starts May 27th and airs over three nights.

Loved this book as well. Read it late at night during Medical Residency. Was looking forward to the movie adaptation that was supposedly coming and instead they made some crappy fictional Outbreak movie with Dustin Hoffman.
