Doomsday

Story by Jack Foley

STRIKE Back star Rhona Mitra has boarded The Last Ship with former Grey’s Anatomy star Eric Dane.

Based on the novel by William Brinkley, the TNT drama will be set in the aftermath of a global catastrophe that nearly obliterates the Earth’s population, forcing the crew of a naval destroyer to confront the reality of their new existence in a world where they are among the only survivors.

Mitra will play a character named Rachel Scott, a strong-willed paleomicro-biologist, while Dane plays Tom Chanler, the commanding officer of the USS Nathan James who’s married with two young daughters.

Michael Bay serves as executive producer.
