Cult film darling, Lauren Ambrose stars as Susan Wheeler, a medical student resident at Atlanta’s Memorial Hospital. After discovering a questionable trend occurring at the hospital, Susan Wheeler begins her search to figure out the horrifying secret of Memorial hospital. For some reason or another, young and seemingly healthy patients undergoing routine (and relatively minor) procedures keep finding themselves comatose. If the coma inducing trauma wasn't enough, all of these comatose individuals are then transferred to the Jefferson Institute. It doesn't take a genius to know that these comas are happening at such a rapid rate from intentional action rather than an unfortunate outcome of the medical practice. Determined to find out the truth, she turns herself into enemy number 1 with her constant file hacking, air duct crawling, and asking meddling questions. Also starring Michael Weston, James Woods, Richard Dreyfuss, Geena Davis, and the incredibly horrifying Ellen Burstyn, COMA isn't monumental, but it's one of the most well developed mini-series events in a very long time.
