Revenge alum Barry Sloane is set to lead the ensemble cast of History’s eight-episode military action drama series Six, from A+E Studios and The Weinstein Company.

Written by William Broyles (Jarhead) and David Broyles, a military Special Operations veteran, and inspired by current events, Six follows a brotherhood of modern American warriors, Navy SEAL Team Six, whose 2014 mission to eliminate a Taliban leader in Afghanistan goes awry when they uncover a U.S. citizen working with the terrorists.

Sloane plays John “Bear” Graves, the recently appointed leader of Seal Team Six, a group of elite soldiers who take on the most high-risk military special ops missions in the world.

In Six, he joins previously cast Dominic Adams and Juan Pablo Raba.

Sloane, repped by Innovative Artists and Silver Lining Entertainment, recently starred in ABC’s The Whispers and National Geographic’s miniseries Saints & Strangers.  He also recurred on Netflix’s Longmire.
