Felicity alum Scott Speedman will star opposite Andre Braugher in ABC's drama pilot from Shawn Ryan.
In Last Resort, a renegade crew of a nuclear submarine, lead by Men of a Certain Age's Braugher, go on the run after defying an order to fire nuclear missiles. They find sanctuary at a NATO base where they declare themselves the world's smallest nuclear nation. Speedman will play XO Sam Kendal, the second-in-command of the U.S.S. Nevada, who is moral and sees all sides of the confrontation.
