Watch: The First Episode of ABC's Nuclear Submarine Drama 'Last Resort' Online Now

The fall pilot online previews continue with “Last Resort,” ABC’s new naval drama about the crew of the USS Colorado, a nuclear submarine that goes rogue after Captain Marcus Chaplin (Andre Braugher) and his second-in-command XO Lt. Commander Sam Kendal (Scott Speedman) question orders they receive to launch missiles at Pakistan. Instead, the ship heads to an uninhabited island after being fired upon, declaring themselves a sovereign nation with nuclear capability while looking for ways to clear their name.

“Last Resort” is from Shawn Ryan (creator of “The Shield” and showrunner of “Terrier”), so it certainly has promise — and Braugher’s proven himself a major television star again and again on “Homicide: Life on the Street,” “Thief” and “Men of a Certain Age.” You can watch the full pilot episode below, courtesy of Yahoo — the broadcast premiere is on ABC on Thursday, September 27th at 8pm.
