'Swine '09' by Global Productions: Opening Soon?

More 'Swine Flu' Dots To Connect:
Wal-Mart weighs role in U.S. H1N1 vaccination plans
ORLANDO, Florida - Wal-Mart Stores Inc is discussing with U.S. health officials the possibility of putting vaccination sites at some of its stores for an H1N1 swine flu inoculation campaign this fall, a company official said on Thursday.
"We are in discussions with CDC (U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and others in local and state departments to see what role we might play," Agwunobi said. "It might be we are a site. It may be help with logistics and with supply chain."
Government’s Swine Flu “Czar” To Become ABC Medical Reporter

In the latest example of a government official leaving public service for television, the CDC's Dr. Richard Besser will join ABC News in September as a senior medical editor and correspondent, according to an internal ABC memo obtained by The Eye.
"Dr. Besser’s distinguished background in public health, emergency preparedness, and epidemiology will enhance the leadership of ABC News in reporting and explaining medical issues to our audiences," ABC News president David Westin said in the memo to staffers.
Besser's last day at CDC is Aug. 15, according to an agency spokeswoman. He emerged as one of the Obama administration's lead spokesmen during the initial H1N1 flu outbreak. He served as acting director of the CDC until June and currently serves as director of the agency's Coordinating Office for Terrorism Preparedness and Emergency Response, responsible for the agency's public health emergency preparedness and emergency response activities.
Coming soon to a 'theatre' near you

It looks as if the 'Swine 2009' saga is going to be a big budget blockbuster, promising fast action and state of the art special effects. In a starring role, the military is preparing 'regional teams' (here), Wal Mart is auditioning for another of the leading roles, and the "ex-acting director of the CDC" has just been hired as the resident 'expert' by ABC to do the live color commentary for the dramatic production. No opening date has been announced just yet but producers are hopeful for an end-of-summer release. Un-rated, may contain violence.
