Sky1 has picked up the rights to air new US drama Last Resort in the UK.

The show will premiere on Tuesday October 30th on 8pm on the channel.

Last Resort stars Andre Braugher and Scott Speedman and follows the crew of a nuclear submarine who refuse to fire their missiles on Pakistan.

The actions of Braugher’s character Navy captain Marcus Chaplin soon reveal a government conspiracy, with the crew of his craft – the USS Colorado – being marked for death.

Sky1’s Acquisitions Manager, Lucy Criddle said: “Last Resort is a tense, edge of your seat thriller and I’m confident that it will resonate with our customers.

“It’s great to be continuing our partnership with Sony Pictures Television on another exemplary piece of television drama.”

Last Resort was created by Shawn Ryan and Karl Gajdusek. The show airs on ABC in the US and debuted with 9m viewers last month.
