Last Light stars and is executive produced by Matthew Fox (Lost) and is based on Alex Scarrow’s best-selling novel of the same name.

The five-episode drama also stars Joanne Froggatt and tells the story of a family fighting to survive in a world that has been suddenly thrown into chaos.

Dennie Gordon (Jack Ryan) will direct and executive produce all episodes and is currently in Prague working on the series.

Patrick Massett and John Zinman (Friday Night Lights, The Blacklist) will serve as showrunners and executive producers.

“Last Light is the perfect combination of an action-packed limited series with a compelling family drama at its heart,” said Lisa Katz, president of scripted content at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming.

“Led by fan favourites Matthew Fox and Joanne Froggatt, this sweeping international saga spans several continents that provide a stunning global backdrop, yet is grounded in a relatable and topical story.”
