The Last Light trailer, which you can check out below, highlights the impending start of a post-apocalyptic event caused by a global oil crisis. Expert Andy Yeats predicts that chaos will follow once his theory about the world’s declining oil supply gets proven true.
Based on Alex Scarrow’s best-selling novel of the same name, Last Light is directed and executive produced by Jack Ryan‘s Dennie Gordon. Joining Fox are Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey) as Elena Yeats, Alyth Ross (Traces) as Laura Yeats, Taylor Fay (Judge Rinder) as Sam Yeats, Amber Rose Revah (The Punisher) as Mika, Victor Alli (Belfast) as Owen Jones, Tom Wlaschiha (Stranger Things) as Karl, and Hakeem Jomah (Kidnap) as Khalil Al-Qatani.
“In the series, Petro-chemist Andy Yeats knows how dependent the world is on oil; if something were to happen to the world’s oil supply, it would set off a chain reaction: transportation would grind to a halt, supplies would cease to be delivered, law enforcement would be overwhelmed,” reads the synopsis. “While on a business trip to the Middle East, Andy realizes that his worst fears are coming true and his family is separated at this crucial moment. His teenage daughter, Laura, is alone at home in London while his wife, Elena, and young son, Sam, are in Paris. Amid this chaos, each family member will sacrifice everything to find one another, despite the distance and the dangers that separate them.”
