Moore – Helix premieres on Friday, January 10 at 10pm ET/PT on Showcase.

Led by Dr. Alan Farragut (Campbell), the CDC team find themselves pulled into a terrifying life-and-death struggle that may hold the key to mankind’s salvation or total annihilation. However, the lethal threat is just the tip of the iceberg, and as the virus evolves, the chilling truth begins to unravel. Helix also stars Hiroyuki Sanada, Kyra Zagorsky, Mark Ghanimé, Jordan Hayes, Meegwun Fairbrother, Catherine Lemieux and Neil Napier, and guest stars Jeri Ryan.
