Sky One Sets A March UK Premiere Date For ‘SEAL Team’
David Boreanaz (‘Bones’, ‘Angel’) is back, along with ‘Mad Men’ star Jessica Paré, as ‘SEAL Team‘ finally hits the UK in March on Sky One.
Get in, get out, get home: that’s the motto of Tier One, the US Navy SEALs’ A-team. An extra-elite unit charged with some of the most dangerous and sensitive missions the US government can demand, Bravo Team is led by Jason Hayes (Boreanaz). When we meet him, he’s in mandatory therapy having a made a call during a mission that meant the death of his best friend, Nate. With the job always coming first, he’s estranged from his wife and rarely sees his daughter. But he’s not the only one whose work is taking a toll on his family life. For all of Bravo Team, being a SEAL comes at a huge personal cost.
Nate’s death left a big space in the team and that’s filled by cocky rookie Clay (Max Thieriot – ‘Bates Motel’), who’s instantly disliked because his former SEAL father published a book about his time on the team. Other team member include Ray Perry (Neil Brown Jr. – ‘Insecure’, ‘Straight Outta Compton’), the longest-tenured operator with whom Jason shares an ingrained shorthand, and Sonny Quinn (A. J. Buckley – ‘CSI: NY’, ‘Murder in the First’), an exceptional, loyal soldier with a checkered past who still combats self-destructive tendencies.
In episode one, the team are still questioning whether new recruit Clay up to the job when CIA liaison officer Mandy Ellis (Paré) gets word of the location of a known terrorist and the team are flown off to Liberia. Their mission is a straight up snatch and grab and Hayes, for one, needs to be back in time for his daughter’s recital. But on arrival, things immediately start to go south…
Created by Benjamin Cavell (‘Homeland’, ‘Justified’), the high-octane new drama begins when ‘SEAL Team‘ comes to Sky One on Thursday, 22nd March 2018 at 9pm.
