"Last Resort" (2012 TV show) on ABC is a drama series premiering in fall 2012.

500 feet beneath the ocean's surface, the U.S. ballistic missile submarine Colorado receive their orders. Over a radio channel, designed only to be used if their homeland has been wiped out, they're told to fire nuclear weapons at Pakistan.

Captain Marcus Chaplin (Andre Braugher) demands confirmation of the orders only to be unceremoniously relieved of duty by the White House. XO Sam Kendal (Scott Speedman) finds himself suddenly in charge of the submarine and facing the same difficult decision. When he also refuses to fire without confirmation of the orders, the Colorado is targeted, fired upon, and hit. The submarine and its crew find themselves crippled on the ocean floor, declared rogue enemies of their own country. Now, with nowhere left to turn, Chaplin and Kendal take the sub on the run and bring the men and women of the Colorado to an exotic island. Here they will find refuge, romance and a chance at a new life, even as they try to clear their names and get home.

A dramatic international action-thriller about treachery, treason, and nuclear brinksmanship, "Last Resort" contemplates establishing of a new society in the modern world, and character becomes everything when unthinkable decisions must be made.

The cast includes Andre Braugher ("Men of a Certain Age") as Captain Marcus Chaplin, Scott Speedman ("The Vow") as XO Sam Kendal, Daisy Betts ("Sea Patrol") as Lieutenant Grace Shepard, Dichen Lachman ("Being Human") as Tani Tumrenjack, Daniel Lissing ("Crownies") as SEAL Officer James King, Sahr Ngaujah ("House of Payne") as Mayor Julian Serrat, Camille de Pazzis as Sophie Gerard, Autumn Reeser ("Hawaii Five-O," "No Ordinary Family") as Kylie Sinclair, and Jessy Schram ("Falling Skies," "Once Upon a Time") as Christine Kendal. Recurring guest star is Robert Patrick ("The Gangster Squad") as Master Chief Joseph Prosser.

The pilot for "Last Resort" was directed by Martin Campbell. The series is produced by Middkid Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television.
