THE RIG

AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY FROM FRIDAY 6 JANUARY

The Rig is a character-driven mystery thriller following the crew of the Kinloch Bravo oil rig as they fight for survival after a strange fog cuts off all communication with the shore, and leaves them stranded in the fierce waves of the North Sea. With their helicopter not coming and supplies limited, Offshore Installation Manager (OIM) and rig boss, Magnus, tries to guide his already fractured crew through the evolving crisis. But his increasingly desperate efforts to restore contact with the mainland are repeatedly shattered as tensions and paranoia rise, the rig’s systems fail, and a devastating accident brings them all face-to-face with the deadly dangers of one of the most extreme working environments on the planet. Pictor Energy Company Rep Rose, is initially skeptical of the crew’s ominous theories about what’s going on outside, keen to get everyone back to work and keep the oil flowing. But as evidence mounts, her scientific curiosity pushes her to uncover the truth of the unnatural forces arrayed against them. As loyalties are tested and alliances are made and broken, we learn more about the crew’s inner lives as they seek to understand both the force they are facing and their place in a rapidly changing world. To make it out alive will take bravery, heroism, sacrifice and a confrontation with the consequences of the paths that brought them here.
