History Orders SEAL Team Drama From Oscar-Nominated Apollo 13 Scribe

The History channel has greenlit eight episodes of SIX, a real life-inspired military action drama from Academy Award-nominated Apollo 13 screenwriter William Broyles Jr. and military special ops veteran David Broyles.

Inspired by current events, the series will follow Navy SEAL Team Six, “the best of the best,” whose 2014 mission to eliminate a Taliban leader in Afghanistan goes awry when they uncover a U.S. citizen working with the terrorists. The project promises to capture “what these SEALs do, their complex personal lives, and the life and death decisions they make.”

Retired U.S. Navy SEAL Mitchell Hall (Zero Dark Thirty, Lone Survivor) will serve as SIX’s technical advisor.

As previously reported, History also on Wednesday ordered the Knights Templar drama Knightfall.
