La Brea is an epic sci-fi adventure story focused around one family torn apart by disaster when a massive sinkhole opens up in Central Los Angeles, on the site of the La Brea tar pits, pulling hundreds of people into its depths. The family are separated and they, alongside hundreds of others, find themselves in a dangerous and primeval land where they must try and survive against all the odds, and reunite.
Natalie Zea stars as Eve Harris, a mum of two who is separated from her husband by the inexplicable event. Chiké Okonkwo stars as 'Ty Coleman', a psychiatrist who befriends Eve, who, along with the other survivors, must band together to try and find a way home.
The show ran on NBC in the US last year, and has at last arrived in the UK, premiering on Channel 5 at 9pm tonight, Monday 1st August. The entire series is also available on Paramount+ from today. Season Two has already been filmed and is scheduled to premiere in the US next month.
