Did you watch The Hot Zone? According to Deadline, Nat Geo is considering turning the limited series into an anthology TV show.
A drama series, The Hot Zone is “inspired by the true events surrounding the origins of the Ebola virus and its arrival on U.S. soil in 1989. In it, a heroic U.S. Army scientist, Nancy Jaax (Julianna Margulies), working with a secret specialized military team, puts her life on the line to head off the outbreak before it spreads to the human population.”
Although nothing official has been announced, National Geographic Channel is reportedly considering a second season of The Hot Zone that will tackle “a different health-related crisis where science is a big factor in finding a solution to potential epidemic or public panic.”
Since its debut late May, The Hot Zone has become Nat Geo’s highest-rated scripted series and is a potential awards contender for the network.
