Lowe plays a rebellious Catholic priest who takes refuge in a bunker with a variety of other survivors after Earth is hit by a comet.

Apocalypse Slough is set to be a bold, adrenaline fuelled drama about the last days of mankind. It is a relentlessly entertaining mix of action, adventure, romance and wit set against a backdrop of apocalyptic chaos, which follows an eclectic group of seemingly unconnected characters around the world as their lives start to intersect in the most unexpected ways. The story is triggered by the news that a comet is on an unavoidable collision course towards.

The series will also be shot in the UK and South Africa.

The 10-part series will air on Sky1 in the UK and NBC in the UK.
