The single-camera project is based on Biegel’s relationship with his siblings and follows three very different brothers working together in the Army at a small base in Florida.
Stults will play Sergeant Pete Waits, a proud, loyal, quick and funny natural leader who’s not unlike a kid playing grown-up. Sent back to the U.S. after decking a superior officer in Afghanistan, Peter is reassigned to an army base in northern Florida, where he’s tasked with leading the notoriously slacker-like Rear Detachment (soldiers whose days consist of washing tanks and getting high).
Stults’ TV credits include 7th Heaven, Happy Town, October Road and the aforementioned Bones offshoot The Finder. He also had an arc this season on Fox’s short-lived Ben & Kate.Follow @MichaelAusiello
