USA's Shooter Gets November Premiere Date, Following Two Delays

Shooter Premiere Date

USA Network’s sniper drama Shooter has a new premiere date — Tuesday, Nov. 15 — in its sights, the network announced late Monday via Twitter.

Based on a Stephen Hunter novel (Point of Impact) and the 2007 Mark Wahlberg film, Shooter stars Ryan Phillippe as Bob Lee Swagger, a highly decorated ex-Marine sniper who is coaxed back into action after he learns about a plot to kill the president. The cast also includes Omar Epps (House), Shantel Vansanten (The Flash), Eddie McClintock (Warehouse 13) and Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Arrow).

The thriller series was twice delayed from its original July 19 premiere date — first, in the wake of the July 7 ambush of Dallas police officers that left five dead and several others wounded, and then by the July 17 ambush-style attack in Baton Rouge, La., that claimed the lives of three law enforcement officers.
