Amazon has revealed the first trailer and the premiere date for its upcoming mystery-thriller series, ‘The Rig.’ Starring several Game of Thrones alumni, ‘The Rig’ will release on January 6, 2023, on Prime Video.
The Rig is a character-driven mystery thriller that follows the Kinloch Bravo oil rig crew as they fight for survival after a mysterious fog cuts off all communication with the land and leaves them isolated in the North Sea's ferocious waves. With their helicopter not arriving and supplies running low, MAGNUS, the Offshore Installation Manager (OIM) and rig leader, tries to lead his already split staff through the unfolding crisis. However, his increasingly desperate attempts to reconnect with the mainland are continually disrupted as tensions and paranoia mount, the rig's systems fail, and a horrific catastrophe brings them all face to face with the grave risks of one of the world's most harsh working environments.
ROSE, a Pictor Energy Company representative, is initially suspicious of the crew's scary theories about what's happening outside, but she's eager to get everyone back to work and keep the oil flowing. But as the evidence builds, her scientific curiosity drives her to learn the truth about the supernatural forces arrayed against them. As loyalties are tested and alliances are formed and destroyed, we discover more about the crew's inner lives as they attempt to comprehend both the force they are confronted with and their place in a fast-changing world. The sins of the past weigh heavily here, and while most of the crew is desperate to return home, the path back is much less obvious for some. It will require bravery, heroism, sacrifice, and a confrontation with the repercussions of the pathways that lead them here to get it out alive. When the crew realizes the scope of the force they've awakened, they realize the biggest risk is not to them, but to everyone they've left behind on land.
Created By David Macpherson, the six-episode series stars Iain Glen, Emily Hampshire, Martin Compston, Calvin Demba, Owen Teale, Richard Pepple, Mark Bonnar, Molly Vevers, Mark Addy, Rochenda Sandall, Emun Elliott, Stuart McQuarrie, Abraham Popoola, Nikhil Parmar, and Cameron Fulton.
John Strickland and Derek Wax are the executive producers, and Wild Mercury Productions is the production company behind this series. ‘The Rig’ is directed by John Strickland and Alex Holmes.
