London – Sony Pictures Television (SPT) has pre-sold its new drama Last Resort to more than 100 countries ahead of its international distribution at MIPCOM in Cannes next month.

In Asia, pan-regional broadcaster AXN Asia will air the series across 20 territories including India, China, Hong Kong and across Southeast Asia, while Canadian rights were acquired earlier this year by Shaw Global. Latest territories confirmed in Europe include Germany (Prosieben), Austria (ORF), Italy (FOX), Spain (Mediaset), Turkey (Digiturk), Czech Republic (NOVA) and Belgium (Telenet).

Keith Le Goy, president of international distribution at SPT, said:  “Last Resort is marked by its ambition and backed by talent with proven pedigree in the US and internationally. The series offers buyers and audiences an incredibly rich arc of stories to unravel and characters to discover, with the world on the brink of war, conspiracy raging in Washington, a tropical island under siege and a web of human relationships caught in the middle.”
