Fresh off of breaking the news that Sky1 has acquired the UK rights to Last Resort, TVWise can reveal that the show’s first season will receive its UK premiere on Sky1 on Tuesday October 30th at 8pm.
Created by Shawn Ryan and Karl Gajdusek, 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.
