This new drama is set in 2006 at the only military hospital providing advanced surgical care in all of Southern Afghanistan, and charts the frantic lives of the hospital’s resident doctors and nurses from Canada, America, the U.K. and other allied countries.

“The Hot Zone” is a production from Canada’s Sienna Films and the U.K.’s Artists Studio. Academy Award®-nominated Daniel Petrie Jr. is executive producer and showrunner. Executive producers are Jennifer Kawaja and Julia Sereny for Sienna Films, Gub Neal, Justin Thomson-Glover and Patrick Irwin for U.K.-based Artists Studio, as well as Simon Vaughan of Lookout Point. “The Hot Zone” was created by Jinder Oujla-Chalmers and Douglas Steinberg.

    I LOVE this show!!! Way to go HBO, because I will be coming back again and again to this show. It is awesome and the transitions from kingdom to kingdom is easy to follow so you become involved in all the treachery and love that is each family. I also like the fact that the women are not wimps they take and give each their own and the men well they are strong and are getting ready for winter. You have got to watch this show!

  2. P.U you have to old your nose or the stench will overwhelm you! The show is GARBAGE!!

    Really really good show, love it! I’ve watch all of the season 1 episodes to date and I’m very much looking forward to the season finale and next season (it was already renewed for Season #2, to air Summer 2012). BTW, the show is on TNT (not HBO) and you can find it online as well if you don’t get TNT.
