Plot Synopsis

Based on Richard Preston's 1995 nonfiction book of the same name, THE HOT ZONE is a six-part limited series that tells the true story about 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, Dr. 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 HOT ZONE is a dramatic, high-stakes scientific thriller with a courageous, brilliant and determined heroine at its center. THE HOT ZONE premieres May 27-29, 2019 at 9pm ET/PT on National Geographic Channel.
