Shooter - USA Tuesday


Spoiler: Premise
SHOOTER, a drama based on the best-selling Bob Lee Swagger novel by Stephen Hunter, Point of Impact, and the 2007 Paramount film starring Mark Wahlberg. The co-production with Paramount Television and Universal Cable Productions comes from executive producers Wahlberg (“Ballers,” “Boardwalk Empire”) of Closest to the Hole Productions; Stephen Levinson (“Ballers,” “Boardwalk Empire”) of Leverage Entertainment; and Lorenzo di Bonaventura ("Transformers," "The Real O'Neals"). John Hlavin (“The Shield”) wrote the pilot and will also executive produce. Simon Cellan Jones (“Bloodline”) directed the pilot.

Ryan Phillippe (“Secrets and Lies”) is a producer on the project and will star as Bob Lee Swagger, an expert marksman living in exile who is coaxed back into action after learning of a plot to kill the president. Omar Epps (“House”) plays Isaac Johnson, an ex-Marine and former commanding officer of Swagger. Now a Secret Service Agent, he solicits Swagger’s expertise for a clandestine operation that has disastrous results.

“SHOOTER is an uncompromising exploration of the definition and evolution of a hero,” said Jackie de Crinis, Executive Vice President, Original Programming, USA Network. “The conspiracy and drama that unfolded throughout the first hour had us completely immersed, and we look forward to more.”

“USA is the perfect home for SHOOTER,” said Amy Powell, President, Paramount Television. “Stephen Hunter’s Bob Lee Swagger is a heroic, iconic character and there is so much more of his story to explore in series. This incredible group of producers and actors bring our vision to the next level; we couldn’t be more thrilled to work with Mark, Ryan, Stephen, John, and Universal Cable Productions to take audiences on an exciting journey.” Source

Re: Shooter - USA Tuesday

I'm a big fan of Stephen Hunter's Bob Lee Swagger novels, so looking forward to this series. Bob Lee Swagger (from the novels) is a deadly sniper who served in Vietnam. He is a fascinating, flawed and brilliant character.

In most of the books, he's an older guy, so Ryan Phillipe seems a little young to play the book Bob Lee Swagger, but I think they are going to reboot the series and rather than having him serve in Vietnam he will have served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The cast seems quite good and the original source material is excellent, hopefully the writing and production is good.

It premieres on Tuesday November 15 on the USA Network. In Canada it's airing on Bravo.

Did anyone watch the Premiere?

The series was taken off the schedule and put back on a couple of times. I totally forgot about it.

I've watched the first two episodes. They were ok. Ryan Phillippe is doing a decent job as the lead, but the show is missing something. Hopefully it picks up, there's lots of good material in the books.

I thought episode 3 was a little better. I liked the flashback although I'm not sure how Omar Epps' character would agree to work with Tom Sizemore character in the current day even though Sizemore's character seemed to be ok with Epps' character getting killed in order to complete the mission.

Did Sizemore and others frame Swagger because he blew the op years ago?

Anyone else watching?

Surprisingly this has been renewed for a second season. More here.

The series has been ok so far but hasn't done justice to the books so far. Hopefully it picks up.
