The latest US show to be picked-up by Sky is ABC's Last Resort. From Karl Gajdusek (Trespass, Dead Like Me) and Shawn Ryan, the creator of The Shield, Terriers and Chicago Code. Last Resort described by Entertainment Weekly as “the most ambitious new drama of the fall” and by JeromeWetzelTV “a compelling plot, with lots of moving pieces, visually enticing settings, engrossing characters”. It is no surprise that Last Resort has already been sold to over 100 territories.

Sky One have already announced the Last Resort will makes its UK premier at 8PM on Tuesday October 30th.

Speaking about the acquisition of Last Resort Sky 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 SPT on another exemplary piece of television drama."

Last Resort stars Andre Braugher (Homicide: Life on the Street) as Captain Marcus Chaplin, the captain of a U.S. nuclear submarine who questions a dubious order to fire nuclear missiles and becomes, with his crew, fugitives from their own country. The crew commandeer a NATO listening station on a remote South Pacific island and declare themselves the world’s newest nuclear nation. What follows is a race against time as the crew struggles to uncover the truth while fighting internal dissent and growing resentment from the island locals.

In the US Last Resort airs Thursday nights 8/7c on ABC. Episode - 1 "Captain" aired on Thursday 27th September.

Last Resort is Sky’s latest acquisition from the 2012 US season following the acquisition of Arrow (Sky 1), The Following (Sky Atlantic), Vegas (Sky Atlantic), Elementary (Sky Living) and Chicago Fire (Sky Living).
