Kyle Schmid (Copper, Being Human) has signed on for a lead role in History’s new military drama 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.

Schmid will play Alex Caulder a witty, efficient, and philosophical soldier, a veteran Navy Seal and one of the key members of Seal Team Six. He has no problem putting personal or family matters aside to focus on a mission – even if this means destroying relationships in the process. He’s loyal to his brothers and nothing more.

Schmid is repped by Don Buchwald & Associates and  Noble Kaplan Abrams.
