Coming off a five-year run at the helm of their USA Network action drama series Covert Affairs, Matt Corman and Chris Ord have joined the midseason CW drama Containment as executive producers and co-showrunners alongside Julie Plec. Plec, who wrote the Containment pilot based on a Belgian format, will need help next season when she will have three series on the CW, Containment and returning dramas The Vampire Diaries and The Originals.
Containment, produced by Warner Bros. TV, chronicles the fallout from a mysterious and deadly epidemic in Atlanta, which prompts a vast urban quarantine, forcing those stuck on the inside to fight for their lives while local and federal officials desperately search for a cure. David Gyasi, Christina Moses, Chris Wood, Kristen Gutoskie, Claudia Black, George Young, Hanna Mangan Lawrence and Trevor St. John star. David Nutter, who directed the pilot, also executive produces.
Corman and Ord most recently created, wrote and executive produced the Piper Perabo-starring CIA drama Covert Affairs, which ended its five-season run on USA in December. They are repped by CAA and attorney Michael Schenkman.
