MUMBAI: Sony Pictures Television (SPT) has pre-sold its new drama, 'Last Resort', to more than 100 countries ahead of the show's US and global premiere on ABC and its international distribution at the television trade event Mipcom in Cannes, France next month.
In India, the show will air on Star World while AXN Asia will telecast the series in places like Hong Kong, Malaysia and South East Asia. European buyers include Germany (Prosieben), Austria (ORF), Italy (Fox), Spain (Mediaset), Turkey (Digiturk), Czech Republic (Nova) and Belgium (Telenet). The rights for Canada were acquired earlier this year by Shaw Global.
SPT president of international distribution Keith LeGoy said, "Last Resort is marked by its ambition and backed by talent with proven
pedigree in the US and internationally. The series offers buyers and audiences an incredibly rich arc of stories to unravel and characters
to discover, with the world on the brink of war, conspiracy raging in Washington, a tropical island under siege and a web of human
relationships caught in the middle."
'Last Resort' follows the crew members of a US nuclear submarine who, after questioning a suspicious order to fire nuclear missiles, become fugitives.
