MUMBAI : Prime Video has released the official trailer for UK Original The Rig which features a first look at Iain Glen (Game of Thrones), Emily Hampshire (Schitt’s Creek) and Martin Compston (Line of Duty) in the highly anticipated upcoming thriller. Mark Addy (White House Farm, Game of Thrones, The Full Monty) also joins the crew of the Kinloch Bravo oil rig as David Coake, head of Pictor Energy’s Research & Expansion Division, who knows more than most about the real danger the crew face.
Filmed at First Stage Studios, and at several exterior locations in Edinburgh, The Rig sees the crew of the Kinloch Bravo oil rig stationed off the Scottish coast in the dangerous waters of the North Sea. When they are due to be collected and return to the mainland, a mysterious and all-enveloping fog rolls through. The rig is hit by massive tremors, and they find themselves cut off from all communication with the shore and the outside world. As the crew endeavour to discover what’s driving this unknown force, a major accident forces them to ask questions about who they can really trust. Bonds are broken, allegiances formed and generational fault lines are exposed. The crew of the Bravo will be driven to the limits of both their loyalties and their endurance leading to a confrontation with forces beyond their imagination.
The series also stars Rochenda Sandall (Criminal: UK), Owen Teale (A Discovery of Witches), Richard Pepple (Cobra), Mark Bonnar (Guilt), Calvin Demba (Life), Emun Elliott (Guilt), Abraham Popoola (Cruella), Stuart McQuarrie (Des), Molly Vevers (The Spanish Princess), Cameron Fulton (River City) and Nikhil Parmar (Foundation).
The Rig is produced by Wild Mercury Productions, written by David Macpherson and directed by John Strickland (episodes 1-3) and Alex Holmes (episodes 4-6).
