FIRST LOOK The Rig

Today, Amazon Prime Video have released first look images from their new six-part thriller, The Rig.

Filming for the new UK Amazon Original series, produced by Wild Mercury Productions, finished earlier this month in Edinburgh, Scotland and the series stars Iain Glen, Emily Hampshire, Martin Compston, Rochenda Sandall, Owen Teale, Richard Pepple, Mark Bonnar, Calvin Demba, Emun Elliott, Abraham Popoola, Stuart McQuarrie and Molly Vevers.


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 and filmed exclusively in Scotland at FirstStage Studios in Edinburgh.


The Rig will air on Amazon Prime Video
