Stan today announced the brand new Stan Original Series Last Light, the highly-anticipated timely thriller starring Matthew Fox (Lost) and Joanne Froggatt (Stan Original Series The Commons, Liar, Downton Abbey), based on Alex Scarrow’s international best-selling novel, will premiere in September.
The series, which was shot in Prague, Abu Dhabi and Paris, tells the story of a family fighting to survive in a world that has been suddenly thrown into chaos.
Petro-chemist Andy Yeats (Matthew Fox) 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. 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 (Alyth Ross), is alone at home in London while his wife, Elena (Joanne Froggatt), and young son, Sam (Taylor Foy), 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.
Also starring with Fox and Froggatt are Tom Wlaschiha (Game of Thrones, Jack Ryan), Alyth Ross, Taylor Fay (Judge Rinder), Amber Rose Revah (The Punisher), Victor Alli (Belfast) and Hakeem Jomah (Rashash).
Dennie Gordon (Jack Ryan) directed all episodes of the five-part series, which was executive produced by Gordon, Fox, William Choi, Sydney Gallonde, Rikke Ennis, Patrick Renault, Diego Piasek, Patrick Massett and John Zinman and co-executive produced by Rola Bauer and Steven Johnson and produced by Veronika Lencova. Last Light was Produced by MGM International Television Productions in association with Peacock, Viaplay Group, MBC, and Stan and is internationally distributed by MGM
