Per the official description, the series follows US Marshall Frank Remnick (Clarke), “the lone Marshal in charge of the quiet, rugged barrens of Alaska, whose jurisdiction is turned upside-down when a prison transport plane crashes in the remote wilderness, setting free dozens of violent inmates. Tasked with protecting the town he’s vowed to keep safe, he begins to suspect the crash wasn’t an accident, but the first step of a well-crafted plan with international political implications.”
Bennett will star as Sidney, descrbed as “a CIA Agent who is tasked with working with Frank.” Cooper will star as Havlock, said to be “a former Navy Seal and fugitive who is being hunted by US Marshals and the CIA.”
This will mark the first TV role of Bennett’s career. She previously starred in films such as “Swallow,” “Widow Clicquot,” “The Magnificent Seven,” and “Cyrano.” She is slated to appear in the upcoming “Borderlands” movie as well.
She is repped by WME, Tavistock Wood, and Brecheen Feldman Breimer Silver Thompson.
Cooper previously starred in the AMC series “Preacher” and has also been in shows like “Agent Carter” and “Spy City.” In film, he is known for roles in features like “Mamma Mia!” and its sequel, “The Devil’s Double,” and “Captain America: The First Avenger.”
He is repped by WME and Markham, Froggatt & Irwin.
“The Last Frontier” hails from creators Jon Bokenkamp and Richard D’Ovidio. Both serve as executive producers alongside Clarke. Sam Hargrave will direct the pilot and executive produce. Apple Studios will produce.
