It Seems Like Every Network Is Now Producing TV Shows About The Military
Producing military television shows appears to be all the rage these days.
Last year The History Channel released the Navy Seal show “Six.”
It was a huge success, and the second season is currently being filmed. Superstar Olivia Munn has even joined the cast.
Well, now CBS, The CW and NBC have all followed the example set by “Six” and are all releasing their own shows about elite military unites.
1) “The Brave”: on NBC
Plot: “The complex world of our bravest military heroes who make personal sacrifices while executing the most challenging and dangerous missions behind enemy lines.”
2) “Seal Team” on CBS
Plot: “The lives of the elite Navy SEALs as they train, plan and execute the most dangerous, high-stakes missions our country can ask.”
3) “Valor” on The CW
Plot: “The boundaries between military discipline and human desire are tested on a U.S. Army base that houses an elite unit of helicopter pilots trained to perform clandestine international and domestic missions. The drama unfolds in the present as well as in flashbacks to a failed mission involving one of the first female pilots in the unit, ultimately uncovering layers of personal and government/military secrets and leading to a season-long plan to rescue a group of MIA soldiers.”
There are now three new military-centered shows on three different massive networks. It seems like the trend is quickly sweeping across the nation after the success of “Six,” but I find it hard to believe all three of these new shows will be great. The odds just don’t work that way.
I guess we’ll have to tune in and find out which one of these new shows will be worth following.
