Tomorrow CW premieres its new mid-season drama, Containment
. The series follows what happens after a mysterious and deadly epidemic breaks out in Atlanta. A quarantine cordon is quickly erected, keeping the sick and potentially infected separated from the rest of the city until a cure can be found.
On the outside is officer Lex Carnahan (David Gyasi), who becomes the face of hope after he is recruited by Dr. Sabine Lommers (Claudia Black), who is coordinating the efforts of the government and CDC. Lex's job becomes complicated when he realizes that his girlfriend Jana (Christian Moses) is stuck inside, as well as his friend and fellow officer Jake (Chris Wood), and he must follow Lommers harsh rule of no one in, no one out, no matter what. Also another problem that he faces is journalist Leo (Trevor St. John), who begins a hunt to find out the full truth of what is really happening inside the quarantine zone.
Meanwhile also stuck inside the quarantined area is elementary school teacher Katie (Kristen Gutoskie) and her class of students, including her son, as well as pregnant teen Teresa (Hannah Mangan Lawrence), who is separated from her boyfriend.
Lastly is Dr. Victor Cannerts (George Young), who is at ground zero trying to find the cure.
