To premiere on Labor Day, the two-part drama centers on a medical student who is curious as to why patients in her hospital are falling into comas during routine surgeries.
Those who are addicted to conspiracy plots may find a pleasure by watching "Coma". The miniseries is set to debut this Labor Day on A&E and is previewed in a video which gives a look at a chilling conversation about an unusual way to treat patients, in which they are "suspended by painlessly-inserted rods."
In the thriller, a young medical student discovers that something sinister is going on in her hospital after routine procedures send more than a few seemingly healthy patients into comas on the operating table. Lauren Ambrose portrays the student, joined by the likes of Steven Pasquale, Geena Davis, James Woods and Richard Dreyfuss in the cast line-up.
Directed by Mikael Salomon, the show comes from producers Ridley and Tony Scott. The story is based on the best-selling 1977 novel by Robin Cook which was previously adapted into a film in 1978 by Michael Crichton.
"Coma" is scheduled to premiere September 3 at 9 P.M., while the second part will air the next day.
