The Stand

Based on the novel by the same name, the show debuted as a miniseries in 1994. The world is suddenly faced with a plague that has been made by man. Battles of Biblical proportions ensue across the globe as people fight for survival. Everything began in a laboratory headed by the government in California. Project Blue is released by accident, and the influenza virus quickly kills the staff of the lab. An officer manages to escape, not knowing that he is infected with the disease.

After he crashes his car, friends discover that he is laying beside his wife and daughter, dying of the disease. With mysterious figures following people to the quarantine of towns, the show is a blend of mystery and science. It plays on the possibility that people could die from a disease that has been created in a lab, and then it explores the fear that is created by something that no one can see.
