This is one a small handful of new fall season shows I’m looking forward to checking out; and if you are too, you won’t have to wait until September 27th, 2012 to watch the pilot episode, because ABC has put the entire pilot online; so you can watch it right now!
It’s great to see Andre Braugher headlining this; the trailers I’d posted before today, definitely were thrilling, as I looked forward to eventually watching the pilot.
An actor I think we’d all love to see get more and more screen time (both on TV and in theaters) Mr Andre Braugher takes the lead in this new ensemble ABC drama titled Last Resort.
What’s Last Resort about?
The project centers on the crew of the U.S.S. Nevada, a nuclear submarine, who, after disobeying a suspicious order, become fugitives. They land on the island of Sainte Marina, where they take over the NATO Listening Station and declare themselves an independent nuclear nation.
Braugher stars as Captain Marcus Chaplin, the commander of the U.S.S. Nevada, a combat veteran, leader and a patriot, but very much his own man.
Last Resort comes from Shawn Ryan, creator of The Shield – the same dude who’s teamed up with Eddie Murphy to reboot Beverly Hills Cop as a TV serieas.
The Emmy award-winning veteran actor will likely be most recently remembered for his Emmy-nominated work on the cancelled TNT dramedy Men Of A Certain Age.
There looks to be some supporting roles for black actors especially, notably Sahr Ngaujah of Broadway’s Fela, playing a character named Mayor Julian Serrat, likely of the island of Sainte Marina.
Without further ado, here’s the pilot episode of Last Resort:
