Nadine Velazquez (Ride Along 2, Flight) and Brianne Davis (True Blood, Jarhead) have been cast opposite Barry Sloane in 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.
Velazquez will play Jackie, a strong military wife whose husband Ricky is considering retirement from the SEAL Team Six but is called upon for one last mission. Davis is Lena Graves, John Graves’ wife and a hard-working teacher.
