|The cast of Containment (The CW)|
Containment, a new limited drama series, will join returning shows Reign and The Flash for The CW’s midseason and could give the network’s rating a good shot in the arm. Produced by Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries, The Originals), Matt Corman (Covert Affairs), Chris Ord (Covert Affairs) and David Nutter (The Flash, Arrow), the virus-themed show is based on a Belgian series of the same name.
Containment is being paired with the network’s #1 series, The Flash, and will debut on Tuesday, April 19th at 9:00 p.m. The series stars David Gyasi, Christina Moses, Chris Wood, Kristen Gutoskie, Claudia Black, George Young, Hanna Mangan Lawrence and Trevor St. John all trying to survive a deadly outbreak in Altanta, Georgia. As the name suggests, many people are held in “containment” to keep the mysterious virus from spreading and causing any more havoc.
