The Paramount+ UK Original series No Escape has finally had a trailer released. The drama is Produced By New Pictures, Part Of All3Media, In Association With Paramount.

Paramount+ has unveiled a first-look trailer 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 wrapped on location in Thailand last year, and the series will launch on Paramount+ exclusively on May 18th in the UK & Ireland, and Canada. The series will also debut exclusively on Paramount+ later this year in 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.


On the release of the first look trailer today, the novel’s author Lucy Clarke said: “It’s been the most incredible experience to see my novel reimagined for the screen. I’ve loved every moment of the journey from reading early scripts to visiting the set in Thailand. The series is breathtaking: transportive, gripping, and thrilling from beginning to end. I can’t wait for viewers to fall in love with it, too!”

NO ESCAPE also stars Jay Ryan (“It Chapter Two”), Sean Keenan (“The Power of the Dog”), Colette Dalal Tchantcho (“Domina”), Elmo Anton Stratz (“Westwall”), and Narayan David Hecter (“Riviera”) as the crew onboard The Blue. Susie Porter (“Wentworth”) and Josh McConville (“Fantasy Island”) are the Australian detectives investigating the mystery of The Blue, whilst Jake Macapagal (“Metro Manila”) is Captain Reyes from the local Filipino Police force, determined to discover what really happened on board The Blue.

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.
