The first official look at the Paramount+ UK Original Series No Escape has been revealed. Coming soon to the UK and Ireland.

Paramount+ has quite the slate of new and original drama coming up over the coming year. One of these is the original series No Escape. The show features the talents of Abigail Lawrie and Rhianne Barreto as two best friends who are on the run for their lives. But what they think is a refuge turns out to be the start of a frightening nightmare for the pair. The first look at the series has today been revealed by Paramount+ in a series of episode stills.


Paramount+ has revealed the first look for the original UK drama series NO ESCAPE. The series, produced by New Pictures, part of All3Media, is adapted from Lucy Clarke’s best-selling novel of the same name. Filming for NO ESCAPE has wrapped on location in Thailand, and the series is coming soon exclusively to Paramount+ in the UK, as well as all international markets outside of the US where the service is available.

NO ESCAPE stars BAFTA Scotland Award Winner Abigail Lawrie (“Tin Star”) and Rhianne Barreto (“The Outlaws”) as best friends Lana and Kitty, who are on the run from their lives in the UK. Together they find refuge on a romantic yacht, The Blue, crewed by a group of enigmatic people sailing through South East Asia. But The Blue harbors dark secrets and the paradise the girls thought they had found turns into a nightmare.

The lead writer on the series is Kris Mrksa (“White House Farm”), and Hans Herbots (“The Serpent”, “Cobra”) is the lead director. Executive Producers for New Pictures are Elaine Pyke and Willow Grylls with Kris Mrksa.
