  • 'The Hot Zone,' May 27-29, National Geographic

    NEW YORK (CNS) -- Julianna Margulies, who memorably played Chicago attorney Alicia Florrick for eight seasons on CBS' popular drama "The Good Wife," embraces a much different challenge playing army veterinary pathologist Lt. Col. Nancy Jaax in the fact-based miniseries "The Hot Zone."

    Cautionary, sobering and often gripping, the program -- adapted from Richard Preston's best-selling, eponymous 1994 book -- debuts on cable's National Geographic channel with two back-to-back episodes Monday, May 27, 9-11 p.m. EDT. The six-hour drama will air three consecutive nights in that timeslot, concluding Wednesday, May 29.

    The setting alternates between 1976 Zaire and 1989 suburban Washington. The show depicts how efforts to contain one of the Ebola virus' initial outbreaks in what is now the Central African Republic informed the Army's efforts to contain the spread of the disease at Hazelton Laboratories, an animal research facility in Reston, Virginia, over a decade later.
