USA Network (“Burn Notice,” “Royal Pains”) has given a pilot commitment to “Shooter,” a drama series adaptation of the 2007 Mark Wahlberg-led feature.
The action drama centers on a highly decorated Marine sniper living in exile who is coaxed back into action after learning of a plot to kill the president. Framed for the attempt, he goes on the run to track the real killer and find out who exactly set him up.
Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson and Lorenzo di Bonaventura will executive produce the project which was originally set up at TNT last year. When the script scored an early release, USA jumped on it.
