Review: National Geographic is ready to take the audience to the most lethal place on the planet in the first trailer of the upcoming limited series The Hot Zone. The series is the latest drama on the web, as it continues to expand into the world of scripted television, this time adapting the best-selling book of the same name to explore the beginnings of the Ebola virus and the almost catastrophic outbreak that began in a Laboratory research in the United States at the end of the 80s.
The story has been in and out of production since the publication of the book in 1994, with Ridley Scott at a given time. For various reasons, the project never came to fruition, and now, more than 20 years after the book’s release, it finally heads to television, with Emmy winner Julianna Margulies in the lead role. The series also stars Topher Grace (BlacKkKlansman), Noah Emmerich (The Americans), Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones) and James D’Arcy (Agent Carter).
The Tribeca Film Festival unveiled its lineup of TV screenings on Monday (18), which includes the world premieres of Amazon’s dark superhero comedy, The Boys, the HBO-based drama series Chernobyl and The Hot Zone Nat Geo.
The full line of televisions at the New York festival, which runs from April 24 to May 5, includes eight series premieres, two season premieres, one main documentary and five independent pilots.
Other series that premiere worldwide at the event are the animated comedy Netflix, Tuca & Bertie, and the documentaries of the Duplex brothers of HBO On Tour with Asperger, Are Us.
The premiere of Chernobyl (pictured), about the catastrophic 1986 nuclear accident, will be followed by a panel with cast members Jared Harris, Stellan Skarsgård and Emily Watson, writer Craig Mazi and director Johan Renck.
Showrunners and executive producers Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson, author Richard Preston and star Julianna Margulies will be in attendance to talk about The Hot Zone, inspired by the true story of the origins of the Ebola virus.
Tribeca will give the premieres of the second season of the Starz Vida series, about two Mexican-American sisters from Eastside of Los Angeles, and the sixth season of Paramount Network Younger, about an aspiring editor who lies about her age to get ahead in the publication.
Receiving premieres in New York will be Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics And Men, Showtime’s documentary series on the hip-hop group, and State Of The Union, SundanceTV’s short comedy series.
Emulating the meetings of films that take place in the festival, Tribeca will mark for the first time the birthdays of two emblematic television programs. A screening of the 30th anniversary of two episodes of The Simpsons will be followed by a panel with James L Brooks, Matt Groening, Matt Selman, Al Jean and Harry Shearer, and a 25th anniversary projection of the sketch comedy program In Living Color will take a panel with the creator and co-star Keenen Ivory Wayans, as well as with Shawn Wayans, Kim Wayans, Tommy Davidson, David Alan Grier and Rosie Perez.
The final season of Mr. Robot, whose first episode screened at Tribeca in 2015, will be held in a conversation with Oscar winner Rami Malek, Christian Slater and Carly Chaikin, and creator Sam Esmail.
The director of the Tribeca Film Festival, Cara Cusumano, commented: “When some of the most cinematographic narrations continue to occur on screens of all sizes and shapes, this year we are particularly inspired by the reach, innovation and achievement of the called ‘small’ screen. “It is a privilege to show these diverse works with a robust program that speaks of the unlimited potential of the episodic form”.
