BURN UP is a high-stakes conspiracy thriller in which two friends - power players in the international oil industry - face a series of violent events and shocking revelations that could tear apart their friendship, their business, even civilization as we know it. Rupert Penry-Jones plays Tom McConnell, an up-and-coming oilman who's best friend Mack (Bradley Whitford) calls the shots as Washington's top oil lobbyist.
When environmental activist Holly, played by Neve Campbell, infiltrates Tom's company, she opens Tom's eyes to a world where the end may be near, and both sides - those fighting climate change and those determined to get rich off the status quo - are willing to kill and be killed. Tom, Mack, and Holly must all decide where their loyalties lie, and how far they are willing to go in order to win.
BURN UP takes viewers from the oil fields of Saudi Arabia, to the oil mansions of London; from Arctic villages where thawing gases burst into flame, to the UN convention where the fate of the world hangs in the balance. BURN UP delivers an eviscerating tale of the last great game, where the earth is at stake, and time is running out. Will Tom - will we - make the right decision?
