Helix looks promising. Of course, “promising” is code for “terrifying.”
The show centers on a group of scientists from the CDC looking into a possible disease outbreak at a mysterious research facility in the Arctic. Upon arrival though, it is clear something has gone horribly wrong.
While the teaser trailer is low on plot details, it's high on foreboding doom; blending together the white sterile walls of a pre-zombie apocalypse with the setting of The Thing. Considering the executive producers combined credits include Battlestar Galactica, LOST, Contact, and The X-Files, the culprit behind humanity's latest hubris could be anything.
