Based on Richard Preston's bestseller, miniseries "The Hot Zone" recounts the terrifying true story of the origins of Ebola, a deadly and highly infectious virus from the central African rainforest, and its first arrival on U.S. soil. In 1989, when this killer suddenly appeared in chimpanzees in a scientific lab in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., there was no known cure. A heroic U.S. Army veterinarian, Dr. Nancy Jaax (Julianna Margulies) working with a secret military SWAT team put herself in mortal peril when she tried to head off the outbreak before it spread to the human population.
