Amazon is headed back to the 1960s. Deadline reports the streaming service will air the BBC TV show The Last Post later this year.
From Peter Moffat, the drama “is set in the 1960s and centers on the lives of a Royal Military Police unit and their families in Aden, Yemen.” The cast includes Jessica Raine, Jessie Buckley, Jeremy Neumark Jones, Amanda Drew, Ben Miles, and Stephen Campbell Moore.
The Last Post will be available to stream on Amazon later this year.
Young married couples in the heart of the Sixties living in extremely close proximity in a very alien and dangerous environment has always struck me as ripe territory for drama. Men full of vim, vigor and a desire to be heroes in a situation where that isn’t always possible, alongside young women who are starting to feel the emancipation of the Sixties and a sense of new freedoms but who are living in a constrained setting where their role is supposed to be merely supportive.”
