CBS has a Navy SEAL drama project in the works with Mark Harmon that is an adaptation of the Brandon Webb bestseller “The Red Circle: My Life in the Navy SEAL Sniper Corps and How I Trained America’s Deadliest Marksmen,” The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
The network has committed to a script for the project, according to the report.
“The CBS drama is told through the point of view of an experienced but newly promoted Navy SEAL who has joined a troubled platoon,” THR reports. “The story is inspired by Webb’s experience serving with SEAL Team 3, Naval Special Warfare Group One Training Detachment sniper cell. He completed his last tour at the Naval Special Warfare Center Sniper Course, where he served as the West Coast sniper course manager.”
Harmon is on board as executive producer, with Todd Robinson set to write the script and executive produce. Webb is set to produce.
