‘Last Light’: 3 Reasons to Watch Peacock’s Matthew Fox-Led Drama – TV Insider
Lost anchor Matthew Fox bursts back onto TV after a 12-year absence in this action thriller based on Alex Scarrow’s bestseller. Read on for three reasons to turn on Last Light.
We repeat: Matthew Fox.
He plays petrochemist Andy Yeats. After the global oil supply is contaminated, “He finds out what he’s made of,” says exec producer-director Dennie Gordon.
A family risks all to reunite.
As riots, blackouts and plane crashes result, Andy, in the Middle East, tries to reach loved ones caught in the bedlam. Wife Elena (Joanne Froggatt) and blind son Sam (Taylor Fay) are in Paris; teen daughter Laura (Alyth Ross), a climate activist, is in London.
The five episodes feel like a blockbuster film.
Gordon reports Froggatt saying, “‘I didn’t think I’d be jumping road barricades [to escape] exploding cars — in pointy boots!’”
