"[Viewers] may see elements of 24 or Lost," Gajdusek - who co-created the series with The Shield's Shawn Ryan - told the Los Angeles Times.

"We stand on the shoulders of giants that came before us. But ultimately we think this show has its own unique vision."

Gajdusek promised that Last Resort - which premieres on Thursday, September 27 - will contain "action", "romance" and "soap" aspects.

"It's absolutely all of [those genres]," he claimed. "It's like all of those great epic stories, from The Odyssey onward."

Andre Braugher (Homicide), Scott Speedman (Underworld), Robert Patrick (The X-Files), Autumn Reeser (The OC), Dichen Lachman (Dollhouse) and Jessy Schram (Falling Skies) will also star in the series.
