Golden Globe and Emmy award winner Julianna Margulies is returning to TV screens as the protagonist Dr. Nancy Jaax in Nat Geo's 'The Hot Zone'. Based on the the international best-seller of the same name by Richard Preston, the miniseries tracks the true story about the origins of the Ebola virus from the central African rainforest and its arrival on US soil in 1989. But the biggest highlight of the show definitely has to be Margulies' character, Dr. Jaax - not only because she a totally badass woman setting records and arrogant people working under her straight for the six episodes of the show, but she also dishes out medical jargon eloquently like a pro.
