TV show description:
This thriller TV series follows a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control. They travel to a high-tech research facility in the Arctic to investigate a possible disease outbreak and find themselves pulled into a terrifying life-and-death struggle that holds the key to mankind’s salvation or total annihilation.
Doctor Alan Farragut (Billy Campbell) is the head of the Center’s Special Pathogens Branch. Brilliant and intense, he’s seen his share of action battling outbreaks and saving lives around the world. None of that compares to what he finds at the Arctic Biosystems base.
His ex-wife is Doctor Julia Walker (Kyra Zagorsky), a Senior Scientist at the Centers For Disease Control. An authoritative genius, she co-heads the rapid response team’s mission to the Arctic Biosystems facility. Doctor Peter Farragut (Neil Napier) is a research scientist working in mutagens. He has a complicated relationship with both his brother, Alan, and his brother’s ex-wife.
Sarcastic and generally light-hearted, Doreen Boyle (Catherine Lemieux) is a veterinary pathologist and an experienced member of the rapid response team. She specializes in the diagnosis of diseases through the examination of animal tissue and bodily fluids. Another member of the rapid response team, Sarah Jordan (Jordan Hayes) is highly intelligent and motivated to impress.
Major Sergio Balleseros (Mark Ghanime) is the Army liaison with the rapid response team. As part of the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases and a systems engineer, he has more than average knowledge of viral pathogens.
Handsome and charismatic, Doctor Hiroshi Hatake (Hiroyuki Sanada) is the head of the Arctic Biosystems research facility. He appears eager for the assistance of the CDC in containing the situation within his base but his true motivations aren’t completely clear.
Daniel Aerov (Meegwun Fairbrother) is the head of security at Arctic Biosystems. Having worked with and for Hatake for most of his life, he’s fiercely loyal and dedicated to helping the head of the facility.
This TV series has not ended yet.
