ABC has ordered ten new series for next season: 6 dramas and 4 comedies. Amongst the new dramas is Last Resort, the latest entry from Shawn Ryan (The Shield, The Chicago Code) and Sony Pictures Television. The drama series has been described as being about the crew of a nuclear submarine who, after refusing an order to fire their nuclear missiles, take refuge at a NATO outpost where they declare themselves the worlds smallest nation with nuclear capabilities. Want to know more about Last Resort? TVWise presents a first look at the new series.
Last Resort follows the crew of the U.S. ballistic missile submarine Colorado who receive orders over a radio channel, designed only to be used if their homeland has been wiped out, to fire nuclear weapons at Pakistan. Captain Marcus Chaplin (Andre Braugher) demands confirmation of the orders only to be unceremoniously relieved of duty by the White House. XO Sam Kendal (Scott Speedman) finds himself suddenly in charge of the submarine and facing the same difficult decision. When he also refuses to fire without confirmation of the orders, the Colorado is targeted, fired upon, and hit. The submarine and its crew find themselves crippled on the ocean floor, declared rogue enemies of their own country. Now, with nowhere left to turn, Chaplin and Kendal take the sub on the run and bring the men and women of the Colorado to an exotic island. Here they will find refuge, romance and a chance at a new life, even as they try to clear their names and get home.
