Written by The Vampire Diaries boss Julie Plec, Cordon centers on the outbreak of a deadly epidemic in Atlanta. When a large city quarantine is quickly enforced, those stuck on the inside are left to fight for their lives.
Per our sister site Deadline, St. John will play Leo, a past-his-prime journalist who receives anonymous information about the particulars of the disease and attempts to find the truth.
Additionally, George Young (Singapore’s The Pupil) has joined the cast as Dr. Victor Cannerts, director of the CDC, who is one of the many quarantined patients.
David Nutter (Arrow, The Flash) will executive-produce the potential series, which also counts The Vampire Diaries‘ Chris Wood, Farscape‘s Claudia Black and Spartacus‘ Hanna Mangan Lawrence among its cast members.
