Coma Sneak Peek: A&E Miniseries From Tony And Ridley Scott Premieres Tonight
Set to premiere tonight as part of a two-night event at A&E is the four-hour miniseries Coma, from Ridley and Tony Scott. This modern-day retelling of Robin Cook's novel stars Lauren Ambrose, Steven Pasquale, Geena Davis, James Woods, Ellen Burstyn and Richard Dreyfuss. Check out this sneak peek of the miniseries, which features an unsettling conversation between Ambrose's Susan Wheeler and Burstyn's Mrs. Emerson.
Coma follows Ambrose's character Susan Wheeler, a med student who's working the surgical rotation when she begins to notice the number of explained comas happening and looks into the situation. The video below has her talking to Ellen Burstyn's Mrs. Emerson, the woman who responsible for the coma patients. It sounds like they have some pretty high-tech stuff being used on these patients.
Burstyn has proven to play up the creepy in the past. Here, she's not only creepy, but there's also confidence and authority from her, which makes for a really unsettling combination.
Executive produced by Tony and Ridley Scott, Coma was directed by Mikael Salomon, with the script written by John J. McLaughlin (based on Robin Cook's novel). The story was previously adapted to film by Michael Crichton back in 1978. The new miniseries airs tonight (Monday, September 3) and tomorrow night (Tuesday, September 4) at 9/8c on A&E.
