A new History channel series focusing on SEAL Team Six is slated to begin filming in Wilmington, NC. Fortunately the series will have former Navy SEAL, Mitchell Hall, as a technical advisor. It has yet to be seen whether the accuracy of television drama will be more along the lines of “Zero Dark Thirty” or “Lone Survivor”, both of which Hall was involved with. Let’s hope they get it right.
The eight-episode first season, produced by A+E Studios and The Weinstein Co., will follow the team, whose 2014 mission to eliminate a Taliban leader in Afghanistan goes awry when it uncovers a U.S. citizen working with the terrorists, according to a release.
The series was just announced Wednesday, but producers and local film executives have been in talks about bringing the project to Wilmington for several months.
