“A&E’s Coma (Mon., Sept. 3 and Tues., Sept. 4 at 9 p.m. ET) is a modern-day retelling of Robin Cook’s bestselling novel, a true thriller that fans might also remember from Michael Crichton’s 1978 film starring Michael Douglas.
“This two-night, four-hour TV movie follows Susan Wheeler (Six Feet Under alum Lauren Ambrose in yet another role that finds her surrounded by lifeless bodies). She’s a med student who begins to realize that something’s very wrong at her hospital when otherwise healthy surgical patients start slipping into comas at an alarming rate.”
