Behind Enemy Lines To Become TV Series

BEHINDENEMYLINESTVSERIESA lot of people might have even forgotten that this movie existed, even more have probably forgotten that it got sequels.  I have not forgotten the original which was actually pretty “not bad” for an action movie.

Fox has apparently ordered a pilot for “Behind Enemy Lines,” a TV drama series adaptation of the 2001 movie.

John Moore directed the original military thriller about an American pilot (Owen Wilson) shot down over Bosnia while on a secret mission, at the same time his commanding officer (Gene Hackman) fights to launch a search and rescue mission. Jeffrey Nachmanoff (“Hostages,” “Homeland”) is set to write and direct the the potential pilot which will shift the action to the jungles of Latin America and involve an entire flight crew who have been shot down.

Like the film there will be their commanding officer on an aircraft carrier trying to get them home, there will also be a female CIA officer in Washington who stumbles into a conspiracy that involves narco traffickers and terrorism, a plot that unites them all.

Nachmanoff, John Davis, John Fox, Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen are executive producing.
