“True Blood” and “Magic Mike XXL” star Joe Manganiello will co-star opposite British beefcake Barry Sloane in History’s upcoming eight-episode military action drama series “Six”.
Written by William Broyles (“Jarhead”) and military Special Operations veteran David Broyles, the story follows the brotherhood of modern American warriors – Navy SEAL Team Six – whose 2014 mission to eliminate a Taliban leader in Afghanistan goes awry when they uncover a U.S. citizen working with the terrorists.
Manganiello will play Rip Taggart, a haggard and aggressive military man who was once the squad leader. Now he’s working in Africa, protecting a small village from Boko Haram. A+E Studios and The Weinstein Company are producing the project.
