Mini-series 'Coma' coming to DVD

The sci-fi mini-series Coma, which is based on the novel by Robin Cook and the 1978 Michael Crichton movie, will be hitting DVD on October 30th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The show aired on A&E over the Labor Day weekend, and the DVD will be 161mins. Executive Producers of the show include Ridley Scott and the late Tony Scott.

A healthy patient suddenly falls into a coma. It’s not an impossible event, but it is rare. So why does it keep happening at Peachtree Memorial?  Lauren Ambrose stars as Dr. Susan Wheeler in this thriller about a medical student who discovers that something sinister is going on in her hospital after routine procedures send more than a few seemingly healthy patients into comas on the operating table.

Based on the novel by Robin Cook, COMA was directed by Emmy Award® winner Mikael Salomon (Outstanding Directing for a Miniseries, Movie or a Dramatic Special: “Band of Brothers”) from a teleplay by John J. McLaughlin.  Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, David W. Zucker, Martin Erlichman and Mikael Salomon serve as executive producers.
