THE LAST SHIP (TNT)
When a global pandemic wipes out eighty percent of the planet’s population, the crew of a lone naval destroyer must find a way to pull humanity from the brink of extinction.
TNT’s new 10-episode, post-apocalyptic drama comes with a familiar premise: something has happened to a vast percentage of the population and the survivors must “do something” to save the rest of humanity. Eric Dane (“Grey’s Anatomy”) stars as the commanding officer of a U.S. Navy ship whose mission it is to try and find a cure for a virus that has decimated the planet. Michael Bay (“Transformers”) is on board as executive producer, giving the show all the hallmarks of a Bay production: explosive action, a sweeping score, and dramatically angled shots.
“The Last Ship” premieres tonight, June 22, at 9:00pm on TNT.
