Amazon Prime Video have released first look images of their upcoming thriller The Rig, starring Iain Glen (Game of Thrones), Emily Hampshire (Schitt’s Creek) and Martin Compston (Line of Duty).
Created by David Macpherson and directed by John Strickland (Bodyguard), the six-part series follows the crew of the Kinloch Bravo oil rig stationed off the Scottish coast in the North Sea’s treacherous waters.
Just as they are due to be collected and returned to the mainland from the remote rig, a mysterious, all-enveloping fog envelops the crew, hitting the station with massive tremors. As the crew find themselves cut off from all communication with the shore and the outside world, they struggle to discover what’s driving this unknown force.
When a major accident forces the crew to question who they can really trust, bonds are broken, allegiances form and generational fault lines are exposed. In a confrontation with forces beyond their imagination, the crew of the Bravo will be driven to the limits of their loyalties and their endurance.
Joining the cast alongside Glen, Hampshire and Compston will be Rochenda Sandall (Small Axe), Owen Teale (Line of Duty), Richard Pepple (Code 404), Mark Bonnar (Catastrophe), Calvin Demba (Life), Emun Elliott (Guilt), Abraham Popoola (The Great), Stuart McQuarrie (The Singapore Grip) and Molly Vevers (The Spanish Princess).
The Rig finished filming in Edinburgh, Scotland earlier this month.
