When Abby Arcane, a CDC investigator and epidemiologist, returns to her hometown of Marais, Louisiana, to work on a swamp-borne virus with mysterious results, she has no idea of the mark it will leave on her.
She finds herself drawn to scientist Alec Holland, before he, too, succumbs to the disease. But the more she investigates the mysteries of the swamp, the more hope she has that Alec may not be dead after all…
This DC Universe supernatural superhero show has attracted rave reviews from critics. CNN.com describes it as, “…lots of scenes in an eerily underlit swamp; complications induced by ghosts of the past; oh, and did I mention the arrogant one-percenters (Will Patton and Virginia Madsen) who prefer to use their gazillions of dollars to live in a fetid swamp instead of Park Avenue or the French Quarter? Yeah, nothing sinister about that. What’s not to like?”, and says that “its extraordinary execution makes it a lot of spooky fun to watch. The cast is taking things seriously, not camping it up, and the characters are finely crafted. And the flirtation rivals that of Next in innovative nerdiness. What epidemiologist could resist a come-on line like “How much do you know about mutagens?”
New episodes land every Saturday and can be streamed on DStv online.
