'Coma' On A&E: Exclusive Sneak Peek At Two-Night Movie Event (VIDEO)

A&E's "Coma" (Mon., Sept. 3 and Tues., Sept. 4 at 9 p.m. ET) is a modern-day retelling of Robin Cook's bestselling novel, a true thriller that fans might also remember from Michael Crichton's 1978 film starring Michael Douglas.

This two-night, four-hour TV movie follows Susan Wheeler ("Six Feet Under" alum Lauren Ambrose in yet another role that finds her surrounded by lifeless bodies). She's a med student who begins to realize that something's very wrong at her hospital when otherwise healthy surgical patients start slipping into comas at an alarming rate.

We've got an exclusive sneak peek at the star-studded TV event (above) with plenty of never-before-seen footage featuring Ambrose and co-stars Steven Pasquale, Geena Davis, James Woods, Ellen Burstyn and Richard Dreyfuss.
