A&E Sets Andromeda Strain Cast

July 12, 2007

Benjamin Bratt ("Law & Order," Miss Congeniality), Rick Schroder ("24," "NYPD Blue"), Eric McCormack ("Will & Grace"), Christa Miller ("Scrubs," "The Drew Carey Show"), Andre Braugher ("Thief," "Homicide: Life on the Streets"), Daniel Dae Kim ("Lost"), Viola Davis ("Traveler") and Ted Whittall ("Falcon Beach") have signed on to star in the A&E original miniseries "The Andromeda Strain" it was announced today by Tana Nugent Jamieson, Senior Vice President, Drama Programming, A&E Network. Production commenced July 3, 2007 in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The four-hour miniseries is from Executive Producers Ridley Scott (Black Hawk Down, Gladiator), Tony Scott (Man on Fire, Top Gun) and David W. Zucker ("Numb3rs") for Scott Free Productions and Tom Thayer ("Kojak") of Traveler's Rest Films. Directed by two-time Academy Award nominee Mikael Saloman (Backdraft, The Abyss), the script is written by Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Schenkkan (The Quiet American) and based on Michael Crichton's best-selling debut novel.

A deadly bacteria code named The Andromeda Strain - is let loose after a U.S. government satellite crash-lands in Utah. The bacteria unleashes a lethal plague that wipes out an entire town leaving only two survivors - an old man and an infant to provide clues to immunizing the population. As the military tries to contain the spreading disaster, only a hastily assembled team of scientists can hope to find a cure and stop the Andromeda Strain from spreading.

Benjamin Bratt stars as Dr. Jeremy Stone, an epidemiologist who heads up the team of scientists assembled to stop The Andromeda Strain from spreading.

Eric McCormack stars as Jack Nash, an investigative reporter for NNT who struggles to control his addictive personality.

Rick Schroder stars as Major Bill Keene, MD, a virologist from the Army's Medical Research Institute of Infectious Disease.

Christa Miller stars as Dr. Angela Noyce, a surgeon, exobiologist and specialist in Tropical and Exotic diseases.

Andre Braugher stars as General George Mancheck a US Army Biochemical Research officer.

Daniel Dae Kim stars as Dr. Tsi Chou, a microbiologist who once served as the premiere biological weapons designer for the North Korean government and now is a US-based bio-terrorism consultant.

Viola Davis stars as Dr. Charlene Barton a pathologist formerly of the Centers for Disease Control now at the San Francisco health department.

Ted Whittall stars as President Dale Scott, a Southern conservative nearing the end of his first term.

"The Andromeda Strain" is produced by Scott Free Productions and Traveler's Rest Films for A&E Network.

'Andromeda Strain' Infects Full Cast

Benjamin Bratt, Eric McCormack, Daniel Dae Kim and Andre Braugher lead miniseries cast
July 12, 2007

A&E has announced the star-studded cast for its upcoming miniseries presentation of "The Andromeda Strain."

Produced by Ridley Scott and Tony Scott, "Andromeda Strain" attracted a slew of familiar TV stars including Benjamin Bratt, Ricky Schroder, Eric McCormack, Andre Braugher, Christa Miller, Daniel Dae Kim, Viola Davis and Ted Whittall.

Production on "The Andromeda Strain" began on July 3 in Vancouver. Mikael Salomon ("The Company") is directing Robert Schenkkan's adaptation of Michael Crichton's bestselling novel.

After a U.S. government satellite crashes in a remote part of Utah, a deadly bacteria begins to spread, wiping out a small town with the exception of one old man and one infant. Why did they survive? Can those survivors teach a team of scientists how to contain the outbreak? And how will the military handle the spreading disaster?

Bratt ("Law & Order") plays Dr. Jeremy Stone, lead epidemiologist on the investigating team. Miller ("Scrubs"), Kim ("Lost") and Davis ("Traveler") play other scientists, with Schroder ("24") as a virologist with the Army's Medical Research Institute of Infectious Disease. Braugher ("Homicide: Life on the Streets") plays General George Mancheck, a US Biochemical Research officer. Complicating things, we assume, is McCormack's ("Will & Grace") Jack, an investigative reporter.

Robert Wise directed a 1971 adaptation of the Crichton novel.

The "Andromeda Strain" remake was originally announced back in 2004 as a four-hour miniseries for Sci Fi Channel.

Si es la serie que creo que es en España se estreno pero fue en forma de telefilme y bajo el nombre de "La amenaza de Andromeda", la recuerdo por que pase muchisimo miedo aquella noche, recuerdo que el virus se transmitia por el aire y entreaba en los pulmones al respirar...En una de las partes de la historia encuentran un bebe que ha sobrevivido por que al llorar respiraba mas deprisa y no daba tiempo al virus a infectarlo.

Aquella noche hiperventile unas 20 veces biggrin.gif

La historia en si esta muy bien, y la verdad es que tengo ganas de ver a Eric en otro tipo de registros!
