History Channel’s new dramatic series SIX authentically captures the inside world of America’s elite Special Operations unit known as SEAL Team Six. Today I talk with the creators William Broyles Jr. and David Broyles and the stars of the show Barry Sloane, Kyle Schmid, and Edwin Hodge. They discuss the dangerous and secretive nature of SEAL Team Six’s missions and how it can put a strain on SEAL’s relationships back home. They talk about the psychological strength required of a SEAL, how the show creators’ own military experience influenced the series, and the grueling physical training the actors endured at SEAL bootcamp.
SIX airs this Wednesday, January 18, at 10PM Eastern on the History Channel. For more information including bonus content, behind the scenes footage and cast and crew interviews, visit www.history.com.
