ABC will launch one of the first sweeps efforts on Tuesday, May 9. The thrillingly titled thriller Fatal Contact: Bird Flu in America will examine what would happen if a major outbreak were to hit America.
Although experts have proven that this would be extremely unlikely, when has logic and common sense ever stood in the way of good TV? Nip Tuck’s Joely Richardson will play a beautiful epidemiologist who travels to China to study an avian flu outbreak that has mutated into a form that can easily infect humans. Eek!
Guaranteed to make hypochondriacs of us all, Fatal Contact: Bird Flu in America may be worth a look.
