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.
“SIX” is an authentic portrayal of what it means to be a member of SEAL Team Six, a true brotherhood, the best at what they do. The series begins with SEAL Team Six troop leader Richard “Rip” Taggart (Walton Goggins/“Vice Principals”; The Hateful Eight) 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/”Revenge”), Alex Caulder (Kyle Schmid/”Copper”) and Ricky “Buddha” Ortiz (Juan Pablo Raba/”Narcos”)–to put their differences aside to locate and rescue their former troop leader.
