“The Last Ship” opens with a global catastrophe that nearly decimates the world’s population. Because of its positioning, the Navy destroyer U.S.S. Nathan James avoids falling victim to the devastating tragedy.

Rhona Mitra plays Rachel Scott, a strong-willed, intelligent and fearless paleomicrobiologist assigned to the ship. Adam Baldwin is XO Mike Slattery, a former homicide detective and Chandler’s second-in-command. Also starring in “The Last Ship” are Travis Van Winkle, Charles Parnell, Christina Elmore, Sam Spruell and Marissa Neitling.
Based on William Brinkley’s popular novel, “The Last Ship” comes to TNT from Bay’s Platinum Dunes and its partners, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form. Bay, Fuller and Form serve as executive producers, along with showrunner Hank Steinberg, Steven Kane and director Jack Bender. Steinberg and Kane wrote the series pilot, which was directed by Jonathan Mostow.
