Description: When a mysterious and deadly epidemic breaks out in Atlanta, a vast urban quarantine is quickly enforced, forcing those stuck on the inside to fight for their lives while local and federal officials desperately search for a cure. Trying to keep the peace on the streets is police officer Lex Carnahan, who has quickly risen through the ranks of the Atlanta PD. But Lex’s job becomes even harder when he learns that his longtime girlfriend, Jana, and his best friend and fellow officer Jake, are trapped within the cordoned area. CWTV.com
Comments: This virus-outbreak series is based on the Belgian entry Cordon. It is being billed as a “limited event series”, though we know that doesn’t really mean much these days. With The Flash as its lead-in, it should hope for a bit of a boost to its audience (though that hasn’t work so well of iZombies), and this one should be worth a look.
