Paramount Network has teamed with producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer to develop a dark comedy pilot, 68 Whiskey.
Adapted from the Israeli television series Charlie Golf One, the pilot revolves around a multicultural mix of men and women deployed as Army medics who together endure a dangerous and Kafkaesque world that leads to self-destructive appetites, outrageous behavior, intense camaraderie and, occasionally, a profound sense of purpose, the network said.
Howard and Grazer will direct and serve as executive producers for 68 Whiskey, which is co-produced by Imagine Television Studios and CBS Television Studios. Series creator Zion Rubin will also executive produce along with Efrat Shmaya Dror and Danna Stern.
