The Platform. Episode 1


The Polar Star is among the biggest in the world, and is able to drill to unprecedented depths. The platform's crew must spend their days handling massive equipment on a man-made island exposed to the elements in the subarctic sea. Fortunes rest on striking gas in just 30 days, before winter closes in. It's a job that calls for discipline, determination and nerves of steel in an environment that can be deadly.
