History Channel has unveiled a new peek at "SIX," an upcoming action-drama series inspired by the top-secret missions of America's elite military task force, SEAL Team 6.
Created by Oscar-nominated screenwriter and Vietnam veteran William Broyles Jr. (Apollo 13, Jarhead, Cast Away), who co-writes the entire eight-episode season with his son, David Broyles, "SIX" revolves around a rescue mission in Nigeria, in which SEAL Team 6 is called in to retrieve a captured American soldier who was once a former troop leader of SIX, played by Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight, FX's Justified).
The series stars Barry Sloane (Revenge), Kyle Schmid (Copper), Edwin Hodge (Chicago Fire), Juan Pablo Raba (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Dominic Adams (Devious Maids), Nondumiso Tembe (True Blood), and Nadine Velazquez (The League).
Three-time Emmy-nominated director of Showtime's "Homeland" Lesli Linka Glatter is helming the first two episodes.
