Jim Sturgess (One Day) and Agyness Deyn (Clash of the Titans) will star in the pre-apocalyptic drama from Luther creator Neil Cross.

The six-part series follows detectives Elaine Renko and Robert Hinks as they attempt to keep order and protect their families as the apocalypse approaches.

They must work together if they are to survive the end of the world, however the two detectives could not be more different: one is kind, gentle and corrupt, the other damaged, difficult and incorruptible.
