Last Resort: First Look at ABC’s New Exotic Island Drama

From executive producer Shawn Ryan (“The Shield,” “The Unit,” “The Chicago Code”) comes Last Resort, ABC’s new drama centered around a group of naval officers who have gone AWOL.

We open Last Resort 500 feet beneath the ocean’s surface, where the U.S. ballistic missile submarine Colorado is patrolling the waters. One day, a message comes over a special radio channel, one that is only designed to be used if their homeland has been wiped out. Their orders: fire nuclear weapons at Pakistan.

But Captain Marcus Chaplin (Andre Braugher) isn’t eager to start a war and he demands confirmation of the orders. In response to his ‘insubordination’, the White House relieves him of duty. His replacement, XO Sam Kendal (Scott Speedman), finds himself facing the same decision. Like his captain, Kendal also refuses to fire without confirmation. The Colorado is then targeted, fired upon, and hit. Crippled on the ocean floor, the officers inside the Colorado find themselves declare traitors and enemies of their own country. Chaplin and Kendal manage to maneuver the submarine to an exotic island, giving the men and women inside a second chance. But in between the romance and a chance at a new life, the officers want to find a way to clear their names and get home.

Last Resort stars Andre Braugher (“Men of a Certain Age”) as Captain Marcus Chaplin, Scott Speedman (“The Vow”) as XO Sam Kendal, Daisy Betts (“Sea Patrol”) as Lieutenant Grace Shepard, Dichen Lachman (“Being Human”) as Tani Tumrenjack, Daniel Lissing (“Crownies”) as SEAL Officer James King, Sahr Ngaujah (“House of Payne”) as Mayor Julian Serrat, Camille de Pazzis as Sophie Gerard, Autumn Reeser (“Hawaii Five-O,” “No Ordinary Family”) as Kylie Sinclair, Jessy Schram (“Falling Skies,” “Once Upon a Time”) as Christine Kendal.

Watch a trailer for Last Resort below, which will be airing on Thursdays at 8:00 p.m. in the fall.
