The Last Post trailer and premiere date on Amazon
On Friday, December 22, Amazon will premiere all six episodes of original dramatic series The Last Post on Prime Video in the US. From the highly-acclaimed BAFTA award winner Peter Moffat (The Night Of) and starring Jessica Raine (Call The Midwife), Jessie Buckley (War and Peace), Jeremy Neumark Jones (Denial), Amanda Drew (Broadchurch), Ben Miles (Coupling, RSC’s Wolf Hall), and Stephen Campbell Moore (History Boys, The Go-Between), The Last Post is set during the social and political unrest of the mid-sixties, in the simmering heat of Aden, Yemen, and centers on the lives of a unit of Royal Military Police officers and their families.
In The Last Post, the men in the police unit don’t have easy jobs: half soldiers, half policemen and full time husbands and fathers who face constant insurgency and threat. Danger is everywhere. Based on Peter Moffat’s childhood memories, his father’s life as an officer in the Royal Military Police and his mother’s struggle between being what the army required her to be and what she felt like being, The Last Post is an in depth look at the sacrifices made by our soldiers and their families.
An Amazon Original Series in the US and made by Bonafide Films and The Forge Entertainment for BBC One in the UK, The Last Post is executive produced for Bonafide Films by Margery Bone and Elwen Rowlands, and by George Faber and Mark Pybus for The Forge Entertainment.
