A special program airing tonight, Friday, April 7, on CNN takes an up-close and at times uncomfortable look at global pandemics such as SARS, Ebola, Zika and bird flu. “Unseen Enemy” premieres at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET as part of the cable channel’s commemoration of World Health Day.
CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta, an executive producer and key figure in the two-hour production from CNN Films, talked about the project and the real risk of pandemics in an interview with TVWeek Open Mic writer Hillary Atkin. Click here to read her report and to watch a trailer for “Unseen Enemy.”
