Tuesday night on the CW is the premiere of Containment (9pMEST/PST). The drama focuses on a pandemic and the officials charged with controlling the crisis and those quarantined and cut off from their loved ones.
From Vampire Diaries EP Julie Plec and director David Nutter, the series opens up on “Day 13” of the crisis, with a flashback to “Day 1,” when the epidemic strikes, and authorities quickly move to mitigate the threat by isolating those who were potentially exposed.
CW describes the show as an “event series,” and it’s leaving the door open for the program to continue on if it is successful with the audience, although some early reviews have not been so favorable.
One Life to Live alum, Trevor St. John is in the cast which also includes: Christina Moses, Chris Woods, David Gyasi, Hanna Mangan Lawrence, Kristen Gutoskie and George Young.
In an interview with Access Hollywood, St. John previews his character of Leo, an investigative journalist who is key to the series. St. John admits: “I love playing characters who don’t quite know right from wrong … some boundary issues. All they know is what they want and they go straight for it. Those are the interesting characters.” And as One Life to Live fans know, St. John played Todd Manning, who eventually turned out to be Victor Lord Jr., who inhabited those same character traits.
After the jump, watch the Access Hollywood red carpet chitchat with Trevor, and then a trailer for Containment. Let us know if you will be checking out the outbreak drama to see Trevor!
