Here’s a first look at Amazon Prime Video’s new six-part thriller The Rig. A star-studded cast including Iain Glen, Emily Hampshire, Martin Compston, Rochenda Sandall, Owen Teale, Richard Pepple, Mark Bonnar and Calvin Demba are the crew of a oil rig who are about to have their lives turned upside down.
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 exposed.
The crew of the Bravo will be driven to the limits of both their loyalties and their endurance, into a confrontation with forces beyond their imagination.
The series was created by David Macpherson and directed by John Strickland (Line of Duty, Bodyguard). The series filmed exclusively in Scotland at FirstStage Studios in Edinburgh.
