NEW YORK, NY - December 8, 2011 - Richard Dreyfuss, Ellen Burstyn, James Woods, Geena Davis, Lauren Ambrose ("Six Feet Under") and Steven Pasquale ("Rescue Me") are set to star in A&E Network's four-hour epic mini series "Coma." The medical thriller from Ridley and Tony Scott and directed by Emmy winner Mikail Salomon ("Band of Brothers") is a modern day retelling of the bestselling novel by Robin Cook and film by Michael Crichton. The two-night event from Sony Pictures Television features a multiple Academy Award and Emmy Award winning cast and is currently in production in Atlanta.

From the team behind A&E's Emmy-nominated miniseries "The Andromeda Strain," and the hit drama series "The Good Wife," "Coma" is a medical thriller about a doctor 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.

"Coma" is produced by Sony Pictures Television for A&E Network. Executive producers are Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, David W. Zucker, Martin Erlichmann and Mikael Salomon. The script was written by John J. McLaughlin.
