A new show based on the 1995 thriller 'Outbreak', which starred Dustin Hoffman, Rene Russo, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Spacey ('Se7en'), is in development over at NBC with 'E.R.' execs Jack Orman and John Wells penning a script.

A rare killer virus from the jungles of Zaire has taken hold in a California community. It knows no boundaries. Its mortality rate is 100%. And Daniels' superiors say the only way to stop its spread is to firebomb the town and everyone in it..."
