Gina Rodriguez to Star in and Executive Produce Drama 'Last Known Position' at Amazon

Amazon has today given a series order to the original drama series Last Known Position based on the scripted podcast of the same name. Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin, Not Dead Yet) will star in and executive produce the series.

The drama will chart the fallout of a brand new state-of-the-art American commercial jetliner that vanishes on its maiden voyage over the Pacific. The ensuing air crash investigation discovers evidence of a creature of the deep that may have been responsible.

Podcast creator Luke Passmore is also adapting the series. Passmore and Rodriguez will executive produce with Rob Herting, Sandra Yee Ling, Michele Zarate, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Fred Berger, Justin Levy, Jeremy Platt and Molly Breeskin. Amazon Studios, QCode, Automatik and I Can & Will Productions will produce.

Rodriguez previously starred in the 8-episode podcast. The cast also featured James Purefoy, Manny Jacinto, Olivia Cheng, Ashley Bell, JR Bourne, Travis Joe Dixon, Matthew Henerson, Jessica Oyelowo, Venk Potula and Giovanna Quinto. It's currently unclear if any other actors will reprise their roles for the series adaptation.
