History’s new military combat drama series Six, makes its series debut on Wednesday, January 18 at 10PM ET/PT.
The eight episode first season of Six follows members of Navy SEAL Team Six, modern American warriors, whose covert mission to eliminate a Taliban leader in Afghanistan goes awry when they uncover a U.S. citizen working with terrorists.
Inspired by real missions, the series authentically captures the inside world of America’s elite Special Operations unit – what these SEALs do, their personal lives, combat and the life-and-death decisions they make to protect and serve their country.
The series begins with SEAL Team Six troop leader Richard ‘Rip’ Taggart (Walton Goggins) making a questionable decision while on a mission in Afghanistan. Two years later, Rip is captured by Boko Haram and it’s up to his former SEAL Team Six brothers – led by Joe Graves (Barry Sloane), Alex Caulder (Kyle Schmid) and Ricky “Buddha” Ortiz (Juan Pablo Raba) – to put their differences aside to locate and rescue their former troop leader.
Six also stars Edwin Hodge, Dominic Adams, Brianne Davis, Nadine Velazquez, Jaylen Moore, Donny Boaz and Nondumiso Tembe.
Six is created by Academy Award® nominee William Broyles and David Broyles, a military special operations veteran.
