Michael Bay is back.

TNT announced their latest pilot order to be The Last Ship, based off best-selling author William Brinkley’s book.

In the action-packed series, a catastrophe nearly levels off the entire world population and a naval crew has to come in terms with the fact they are among the few survivors left on the planet.

"The book The Last Ship is a gripping page-turner that has all the makings of a terrific television drama, including a great premise, memorable characters, intense situations and heart-racing action," says TNT president Michael Wright. "We believe this show will take viewers on a thrilling ride and fits perfectly with TNT’s expanding line-up of original dramas. We look forward to working with Michael Bay and The Last Ship's outstanding production team."

This sounds like a promising new series that could be as gripping as the book. Only question is: how many plot twists and love triangles can be explored before the show loses its appeal?
