The latest TV series by The CW, "Containment," will explore the story of Atlanta, as an epidemic outbreak engulfs the entire city. The series will tell the story of the residents who will try to escape out of the plague and find a cure to it.
Not much of the plot has been revealed yet, except for the fact that the series will be based on Belgian TV series "Cordon" and will star Chris Wood from "The Vampire Diaries."
The official synopsis of "Containment" by Warner Bros. reads:
"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 (David Gyasi), 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 (Christina Moses), and his best friend and fellow officer Jake (Chris Wood), are trapped within the cordoned area.
"Also quarantined in viral ground zero is 17 year-old Teresa (Hanna Mangan-Lawrence), who is eight months pregnant and now separated from her boyfriend on the other side; Katie Frank (Kristen Gutoskie), an elementary school teacher now placed on lockdown with her entire class, including her young son; and CDC researcher Dr. Victor Cannerts (George Young), the doctor who initially made the controversial call to quarantine the area and is now racing to find a cure for the virus.
"On the outside, Dr. Sabine Lommers (Claudia Black) is leading the government efforts to contain the outbreak, and has asked for Lex's help in enforcing the cordon- which grows increasingly difficult as the public trust deteriorates."
