Shooter is set to debut this fall, USA Network announced Monday.

The Ryan Phillippe-starring TV adaptation of the 2007 action thriller will premiere on Nov. 15. The show shared the news via Twitter Monday, writing of the teaser, “To clear his name & find the truth — he has to survive. @RyanPhillippe stars as #BobLeeSwagger. #ShooterTV premieres 11.15 at 10/9c on USA.”

Shooter was initially slated to premiere in July, but USA pushed it back a week due to the sniper attack in Dallas that month. The network later decided to hold the show for the fall.

The series finds Phillippe playing Bob Lee Swagger, a former Marine marksman who believes he was set up in a plot to assassinate the president of the United States. On the run, Swagger must stay one step ahead of the authorities while also searching for the real shooter.

Shooter is based on Mark Wahlberg’s hit film, and both projects are based on Stephen Hunter’s novel Point of Impact. Wahlberg serves as an executive producer along with Stephen Levinson.
