8 of 10: 'Last Resort' (Thursdays at 8 p.m., premieres in September): 500 feet beneath the ocean's surface, the crew of the U.S. ballistic missile submarine Colorado receives their orders: fire nuclear weapons at Pakistan. But when Capt. Marcus Chaplin (Andre Braugher) and XO Sam Kendal (Scott Speedman) refuse to fire without confirmation, the sub is targeted, fired upon, and hit.

The Colorado and its crew find themselves crippled on the ocean floor, declared rogue enemies of their own country. Now, with nowhere left to turn, Chaplin and Kendal take the sub on the run and bring the men and women of the Colorado to an exotic island. Here they will find refuge, romance and a chance at a new life, even as they try to clear their names and get home.

"Last Resort" stars Andre Braugher ("Men of a Certain Age") as Captain Marcus Chaplin, Scott Speedman ("The Vow") as XO Sam Kendal, Daisy Betts ("Sea Patrol") as Lieutenant Grace Shepard, Dichen Lachman ("Being Human") as Tani Tumrenjack, Daniel Lissing ("Crownies") as SEAL Officer James King, Sahr Ngaujah ("House of Payne") as Mayor Julian Serrat, Camille de Pazzis as Sophie Gerard, Autumn Reeser ("Hawaii Five-O," "No Ordinary Family") as Kylie Sinclair, Jessy Schram ("Falling Skies," "Once Upon a Time") as Christine Kendal.
