.”

FIVE HUNDRED FEET UNDER THE INDIAN OCEAN, the US Submarine Colorado receives orders to fire nuclear missiles at Pakistan via an old, Cold War, source that should mean that DC is incapacitated.


Captain Marcus Chaplin (Andrew Braugher: Television's Men Of A Certain Age) and Executive Officer 'XO' Sam Kendal (Scott Speedman: The Vow) refuse to act on the suspect order an action supported by Lieutenant Grace Shepard (Daisy Betts: Shutter), daughter of Admiral Arthur Shepard (Bruce Davison).

An incredible, tense
and exciting, fast-moving
series that takes
compulsion
to the next level...”
The Top Secret Emergency Action Message from Emergency Antarctic Command to the USS Colorado may be linked to the mission of the US Navy Seals they have just picked up.

But not everyone on board is as cautious as Marcus. Master Chief Joseph Prosser (Robert Patrick: Walk The Line), the Chief of the Boat (COB), believes that the order should have been followed and some of the crew are with him.

Questioning the legitimacy of the order and requesting a communication from someone in authority, Marcus is alarmed when the Colorado is fired upon and left on the bottom of the ocean. An experimental new system, Perseus, keeps them off-radar until they cross the equator.

Alienated from the United States, Marcus and his crew, along with the Seals, head for the harbour of an exotic island that turns out to be owned by the sinister drug baron Julian Serrat (Sahr Ngaujah: Stomp The Yard).

On the island is a Nato Early Warning Station with a sophisticated computer system operated by a team led by Frenchwoman Sophie Girard (Camille De Pazzis: Gamer), who takes a romantic interest in Sam Kendal. Sophie is also supposed to be taking soil samples for Julian, who believes the island has hidden mineral riches he can exploit.

SEAL Barry Hopper (David Rees Snell), shot and wounded during the mission in Pakistan, remains incapacitated but he seems to know more about what went on in Pakistan and, crucially, why. Meanwhile, his friend and fellow SEAL James King (Daniel Lissing: Television's Crownies) falls in love with islander Tani Tumrenjack (Dichen Lachman: Television's Dollhouse).

Julian kidnaps three Colorado crew members, including Pilar Cortez (Jessica Comacho), in an attempt at controlling Marcus; but far more worrying for the captain is the knowledge that someone is working against them from the inside.

Sam's wife Christine (Jessy Schram: Unstoppable) is alone and afraid and his friend Paul Wells (Jay Hernandez) is apparently looking out for her. However, he is being influenced by those who are working against the Colorado.

Christine is befriended and helped by Kylie (Autumn Reeser: The Girl Next Door), whose father Barton Sinclair (Michael Gaston) owns the company that developed Perseus. But Kylie's boyfriend Robert Mitchell (Darri Ingolfsson) is not at all he seems to be.

Both Christine and Kylie are in great danger; and somehow Marcus and those loyal to him among the Colorado must prove their allegiance to the United States of America and clear their names. As negotiations hot up with unwelcome input from the Russians, Chinese, Americans and Pakistanis, their lives are in danger at every turn. They have yet to discover that those involved in this conspiracy of nuclear proportions can be linked directly to The White House and the President himself.

Last Resort: The Complete Series is an incredible, tense and exciting, fast-moving series that takes compulsion to the next level. A critically-acclaimed drama filled with action and suspense.
