Based on Alex Scarrow’s 2007 novel of the same name, “Last Light” tells the story of a family fighting to survive in a world that has been suddenly thrown into chaos. Fox, who has not had a TV role since the conclusion of ABC’s “Lost” in 2010, will star alongside “Downton Abbey” vet Joanne Foggatt.
Here is Peacock’s description of the series:
Petro-chemist Andy Nielsen (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.
