Tuesday night on the CW is the premiere of Containment (9pMEST/PST). The drama focuses on a pandemic and the officials charged with controlling the crisis and those quarantined and cut off from their loved ones.

From Vampire Diaries EP Julie Plec and director David Nutter, the series opens up on  “Day 13” of the crisis, with a flashback to “Day 1,” when the epidemic strikes, and authorities quickly move to mitigate the threat by isolating those who were potentially exposed.

CW describes the show as an “event series,” and it’s leaving the door open for the program to continue on if it is successful with the audience, although some early reviews have not been so favorable.

One Life to Live alum, Trevor St. John is in the cast which also includes: Christina Moses, Chris Woods,  David Gyasi, Hanna Mangan Lawrence, Kristen Gutoskie and George Young.

In an interview with Access Hollywood, St. John previews his character of Leo, an investigative journalist who is key to the series.  St. John admits:  “I love playing characters who don’t quite know right from wrong …  some boundary issues.  All they know is what they want and they go straight for it.  Those are the interesting characters.”   And as One Life to Live fans know, St. John played Todd Manning, who eventually turned out to be Victor Lord Jr., who inhabited those same character traits.

After the jump, watch the Access Hollywood red carpet chitchat with Trevor, and then a trailer for Containment.   Let us know if you will be checking out the outbreak drama to see Trevor!

Trevor St. John is a super actor and I’ve been looking forward to this program because of him. I hope we get to see a great deal of him.

The concept of the show is very interesting. My concern is are they going to really tell a story or are they going to rely on special effects for shock value? My fingers are crossed for story telling and character development.

Awwww!! Really, James? What a big let-down. The show will not be the same without her, if it does get picked up again.

This guy should be a movie star. His death penelty story years ago was the best thing I ever saw on TV , never mind daytime. He should have won an Emmy that year. Walking into the role of Todd would have been suicide to another lessor actor. He had his own with all those sosp vets.

‘The View’s’ Sunny Hostin & Ana Navarro Test Positive for COVID-19; Asked to Leave Studio Ahead Of V.P. Kamala Harris Interview

This morning on The View, an awkward situation arose, when while on the air, co-hosts, Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro, where asked to leave the panel desk and exit the studio.

All of this happened before a live interview was scheduled to happen with Vice President Kamala Harris.  It was revealed that Hostin and Navarro tested positive for Covid-19, and were ‘breakthrough” cases since they had been previously vaccinated.

Host, Joy Behar delivered the news to the audience at home so they knew what was going on with the bizarre moment playing out on live TV, sharing,  “Ana and Sunny, at the last minute we realized they have tested positive for COVID so they have been taken off of the show.”

Harris, who had planned to join the ladies at the table, instead was going to be interviewed remotely from a different place in the ABC TV studio in New York, while Joy Behar and Sara Haines remained on the set.

As for Kamala Harris, Behar added: “It’s very important we keep her healthy and safe. The Secret Service is doing things to make her feel safe.”

While the delay was announced, Behar and Haines took questions from the in-studio audience.

Watch Behar below explain what was going on.

Then let us know, how do you feel The View handled the situation? Comment below.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.
