In the Navy
CBS military drama SEAL Team, which stars David Boreanaz (Bones, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), follows the lives of the elite Navy SEALs as they train, plan and execute dangerous, high-stakes missions for the US.
Executive producers Sarah Timberman and Ben Cavell, who wrote the pilot, tell DQ why authenticity is key for the series, which they chose to focus on the people who carry out these missions, rather than the missions themselves.
Fellow executive producer Ed Relich also explains why the creative team didn’t want SEAL Team to simply be a ‘mission of the week’ drama, but one that tells stories through the show’s characters and their relationships with each other.
SEAL Team is produced by CBS Television Studios and Timberman-Beverly Productions for CBS and is distributed by CBS Studios International.
