The great Andre Braugher (“Homicide,” “Gideon’s Crossing,” “Men Of A Certain Age”) has been cast as the lead in ABC's “The Last Resort,” a pilot about a U.S. submarine crew that decides to ignore a suspicious order, take over a NATO listening outpost and use the sub’s 24 nuclear warheads to declare itself a new nation.
Braugher will play the sub’s captain, Marcus Chaplin.
The ensemble drama will be set on a secluded island to help viewers think they’re watching “Lost.”
The pilot was scripted by Shawn Ryan, whose earlier creations include “The Shield,” “Terriers” and “The Chicago Code.”
