Amazon has a predilection for period dramas of late with titles like The Last Tycoon and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. The streaming service’s latest historical drama comes in the form of The Last Post, a six-part series from The Night Of creator Peter Moffat, the first trailer for which EW is debuting exclusively.

Set in Aden, Yemen in 1965, the series centers on the lives of a unit of Royal Military Police officers and their families. Political and social tensions run high in the explosive heat of the desert. The first trailer showcases marital strife, kidnapping, gorgeous landscapes, and lush period costumes.

Jessica Raine (Call The Midwife), Jessie Buckley (War and Peace), Jeremy Neumark Jones (Denial), Amanda Drew (Broadchurch), Ben Miles (Coupling, RSC’s Wolf Hall), and Stephen Campbell Moore (History Boys, The Go-Between) all star.
