David Gyasi co-stars in “Containment” (previously titled “Cordon”), leading an ensemble cast in a series that examines
what happens when a deadly epidemic breaks out in Atlanta, and a large
city quarantine is quickly enforced, leaving those stuck on the inside
to fight for their lives.
It’s one of a handful of new series set to debut next TV season (this one is heading to The CW), and is based on the Belgian TV series of the same name. The show was officially ordered as a series on May 7, 2015, and has been slotted for a January 2016 mid-season premiere.
Gyasi is joined by
Kristen Gutoskie, Frank
Claudia Black and Trevor St. John.
The series is written by Julie Plec who also produces.
