Did you know that ABC cancelled LAST RESORT?
ABC has announced it has cancelled its freshman military drama LAST RESORT. The series centered around a U.S. nuclear attack sub which receives authenticated nuclear launch orders from a suspicious source. When the captain and XO try to clarify the order through proper channels the sub is attacked and declared rogue.
The captain of the sub takes his crew to a neutral island and where he tries to clear his own and his crews' good name while dealing with corrupt government officials, a UN listening post, possible saboteurs within his ranks and an island local who runs illegal contraband to different nations around the world.
Unfortunately, the series never found a large enough audience in its first few episodes and ABC will not order more than the original 13 episodes.
Another good show that never got the chance to get its footing and attract an audience. TV execs seem to want shows that are hits right out of the gate than allow a series to grow into hits.
