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.
