Continuing on with first-looks at ABC's next season pickups...

Damn it feels good to see Andre Braugher headlining this; and from the below trailer, I'm mos def digging what I'm getting from it, and look forward to that pilot.

An actor I think we'd all love to see get more and more screen time (both on TV and in theaters) Mr Andre Braugher plays the lead role in this new ensemble ABC drama titled Last Resort.

What's Last Resort about:

The project centers on the crew of the U.S.S. Nevada, a nuclear submarine, who, after disobeying a suspicious order, become fugitives. They land on the island of Sainte Marina, where they take over the NATO Listening Station and declare themselves an independent nuclear nation.

I like how that reads. And no it's not a J.J. Abrams or Shonda Rhimes project, since both names seem to be attached to everything (nyuck, nyuck).

Although it does sound like something Abrams would produce doesn't it?

Braugher stars as Captain Marcus Chaplin, the commander of the U.S.S. Nevada, a combat veteran, leader and a patriot, but very much his own man.

And oh, by the way, Last Resort comes from Shawn Ryan, creator of The Shield

The Emmy award-winning veteran actor will likely be most recently remembered for his Emmy-nominated work on the cancelled TNT dramedy Men Of A Certain Age

When this was first announced several months ago, I recall asking what the chances were that Braugher won't be the ONLY non-white actor in this new series' ensemble cast; based on the trailer below, it looks like, while he appears to be its star, there are some supporting roles for black actors especially, on the island of Sainte Marina.

    I couldn't see the trailer as it was geographically restricted. What I saw elsewhere looks more like a movie trailer than a series. I agree wit SLB, it sounds more like a mini series than a prolonged weekly series. Still, I'll give it a try.

    Anything with Andre Braugher gets a look from me. But Shawn Ryan's involvement seals the deal. I never saw Chicago Code but The Shield and The Unit are two of my favorite dramas. I don't think this could be a five season series. The premise sounds perfect for a limited run or mini series.

    Great trailer!

    BTW, the sub's name is the 'U.S.S. Colorado.'
