Spectrum has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original drama series The Bite starring Audra McDonald (The Good Fight) and Taylor Schilling (Orange Is the New Black).

The drama follows the lives of two neighbors Rachel (McDonald) and Lily (Schilling) as they embark on unprecedented times when a deadly new strain of a virus arrives. Navigating the new normal in New York City, Rachel works from home juggling her many telemedicine clients and a shaky marriage to her husband Dr. Zach, who has a prestigious job at the CDC miles away in Washington, D.C. Meanwhile, Lily is upstairs trying to convince her Wall Street clientele that her very specific skillset is still just as valuable through a video screen as it was in person.

The cast also features Steven Pasquale, Will Swenson, Phillipa Soo and Leslie Uggams.

Robert and Michelle King (The Good Wife, The Good Fight) created the drama. They executive produce with Liz Glotzer and Brooke Kennedy. Spectrum Originals, CBS Studios and King Size Productions produce.
