ABC snags a futuristic Shawn Ryan drama and Jekyll and Hyde-inspired project

The series tells the story of a U.S. nuclear submarine crew who refuses direct orders to fire nuclear missiles and must go on the lam. They find sanctuary at a NATO base where they declare themselves the world's smallest nuclear nation.

Ryan will executive-produce the series, which he wrote with Karl Gajdusek (Dead Like Me). Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) will direct the pilot.
