TNT Orders Pilot of Michael Bay-Produced The Last Ship

by at . Comments

TNT and Michael Bay are teaming up to bring The Last Ship to the small screen.

The William Brinkley novel centers on a naval destroyer and how a global catastrophe nearly destroys the the earth's population. You know, Michael Bay stuff.

  • The Last Ship
  • Bay, Michael

"The book The Last Ship is a gripping page-turner that has all the makings of a terrific television drama, including a great premise, memorable characters, intense situations and heart-racing action," said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). "We believe this show will take viewers on a thrilling ride and fits perfectly with TNT’s expanding line-up of original dramas. We look forward to working with Michael Bay and The Last Ship's outstanding production team."

No word yet when The Last Ship pilot will air, but most likely not until 2013.
