His teenage daughter, Laura, is alone at home in London while his wife, Elena, and young son, Sam, are in Paris.

The Apocalyptic Thriller Starring Matthew Fox Premieres On Peacock Thursday, September 8 With All Five Episodes Dropping At Launch

When darkness falls, hope rises. #LastLightPeacock is streaming September 8 on @PeacockTV. 🚨

A NOTE FROM DENNIE GORDON - EXECUTIVE PRODUCER AND DIRECTOR:

I am so excited to share this work with all of you. This project has been a career high for me; the ability to tell an important story with an international team of actors and artists, with MGM International Television Productions and Peacock, a studio and streamer that has allowed me tremendous creative freedom.

We knew that we were telling a ripped from the headlines story. But we didn't realize that things would escalate as they have, and that we would be living all these events as we were shooting in real time.

Our thriller is told against the backdrop of a family separated by world events, and I was privileged and thrilled to have Matthew Fox come out of retirement for this special series.

We had a couple of intense obstacles while making this including shooting during the heights Covid. But I speak for all of us when I say we each gave 1000% every single day because this was a labor of love that meant so much to all of us.

I was deeply inspired by Alfonso Cuarón's brilliant film CHILDREN OF MEN, a scenario we can envision just around the corner. And like that film we hope to give our audience a shred of hope at the end; what is possible if we all come together to affect change???

Thank you for your interest in LAST LIGHT. I hope you will connect with Andy Yeats and his family, and we hope that this series will start the conversations we all might have about our dependency on oil and how we survive climate change.
