Discovery orders SEAL Team Six docu-special -- EXCLUSIVE

Posted on

Secret Seals
Discovery Channel

The elite military unit credited with killing Osama bin Laden is getting their own Discovery docu-special.

In Secrets of SEAL Team Six, the network will introduce viewers to the team’s founder Dick Marcinko and former members as it explores the team’s history, training, weapons and technology. “[It’s] a group that will kick ass and save you,” Marcinko says.

Though the top-secret identities of the team members who participated in the Pakistan mission are, of course, not identified, the show will go behind closed doors to reveal new details of this unit — including talking to the wives of team members (Can we request a Real Housewives of SEAL Team Six spinoff?).

The special will air on Discovery on Sunday, July 10 at 9 p.m. The project is the second elite military program recently ordered by the network, which just greenlit the hardcore competition series One Man Army.
