Written by Nikki Toscano and directed by McG, Behind Enemy Lines is a military soap thriller wherein a group of U.S. soldiers find themselves trapped behind enemy lines. It’s described as a multiple-perspective narrative that closely follows our soldiers on the ground and the officers and service men and women on a nearby aircraft carrier, along with intelligence officers in D.C. as they attempt to bring our heroes home safely and under the radar. Helgenberger will play Admiral Bobbie Decker, a Navy Admiral, the most powerful woman in the military, fierce but fair, a no BS straight shooter, who will do anything to keep her men and women safe.
The project hails from 20th Century Fox TV — whose feature sibling was behind the movie — studio-based Temple Hill and Davis Entertainment,
Helgenberger, known for her work on long-running CBS series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, most recently appeared in Under The Dome and Intelligence. She’s repped by ICM Partners, Sanders Armstrong Caserta Management and attorney Fred Toczek.
