Season 1

Containment is an American science fiction television series developed by Julie Plec and based on the Belgian series Cordon, which follows an epidemic that breaks out in Atlanta, leaving the large city quarantined and those stuck on the inside fighting for their lives.

When a mysterious and deadly epidemic breaks out in Atlanta, a vast urban quarantine is quickly enforced, forcing those stuck on the inside to fight for their lives while local and federal officials desperately search for a cure.

Trying to keep the peace on the streets is police officer Lex Carnahan (David Gyasi), who has quickly risen through the ranks of the Atlanta PD. But Lex's job becomes even harder when he learns that his longtime girlfriend, Jana (Christina Moses), and his best friend and fellow officer Jake (Chris Wood), are trapped within the cordoned area.

Also quarantined in viral ground zero is 17 year-old Teresa (Hanna Mangan-Lawrence), who is eight months pregnant and now separated from her boyfriend on the other side; Katie Frank (Kristen Gutoskie), an elementary school teacher now placed on lockdown with her entire class, including her young son; and CDC researcher Dr. Victor Cannerts (George Young), the doctor who initially made the controversial call to quarantine the area and is now racing to find a cure for the virus.

On the outside, Dr. Sabine Lommers (Claudia Black) is leading the government efforts to contain the outbreak, and has asked for Lex's help in enforcing the cordon - which grows increasingly difficult as the public trust deteriorates.

And the public has reason to be wary, as journalist Leo Green (Trevor St. John) begins unraveling a conspiracy, finding that something doesn't add up in the official story being told.

Torn apart from their loved ones, the survivors trapped within the cordon are fighting against not only fatal infection, but also isolation, fear, and the disintegration of society around them.

But as they begin to gain each other's trust, hope remains, and on either side of the cordon unlikely heroes will rise.

Containment stars David Gyasi (Interstellar); Christina Moses (Starship: Apocalypse, Starship: Rising); Chris Wood (The Vampire Diaries); Kristen Gutoskie (Beaver Falls); Claudia Black (The Originals, Farscape); George Young (Casualty); Hanna Mangan-Lawrence (Spartacus: War of the Damned); and Trevor St. John (One Life to Live).

Based on the original Belgian series created by Carl Joos for Eyeworks, Containment was produced by My So-Called Company in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries, The Originals) and David Nutter (The Flash, Arrow).
