"Six" (TV show) is a military action drama on History Channel.

The series follows members of Navy SEAL Team Six, modern American warriors, whose covert mission to eliminate a Taliban leader in Afghanistan goes awry when they uncover a U.S. citizen working with terrorists. Inspired by real missions, the series authentically captures the inside world of America's elite Special Operations unit – what these SEALs do, their personal lives, combat and the life-and-death decisions they make to protect and serve their country. The series is an authentic portrayal of what it means to be a member of SEAL Team Six, a true brotherhood, the best at what they do.

The series begins with SEAL Team Six troop leader Richard "Rip" Taggart (Walton Goggins, "Vice Principals," "The Hateful Eight") making a questionable decision while on a mission in Afghanistan. Two years later, Rip is captured by Boko Haram and it's up to his former SEAL Team Six brothers – led by Joe Graves (Barry Sloane, "Revenge"), Alex Caulder (Kyle Schmid, "Copper") and Ricky "Buddha" Ortiz (Juan Pablo Raba, "Narcos") – to put their differences aside to locate and rescue their former troop leader.

The cast also includes Edwin Hodge ("Chicago Fire"), Dominic Adams ("Devious Maids"), Brianne Davis ("Jarhead"), Nadine Velazquez ("Flight"), Jaylen Moore ("Homeland"), Donny Boaz ("The Great Debaters") and Nondumiso Tembe ("True Blood").

The first two episodes are directed by Academy Award, Emmy nominated and DGA Award winning Lesli Linka Glatter ("Homeland," "Ray Donovan").

"Six" is produced by A+E Studios in association with Weinstein Television. The series is created by Academy Award nominee William Broyles ("Cast Away," "Apollo 13," "Jarhead") and David Broyles, a military special operations veteran. William Broyles, Harvey and Bob Weinstein, David Glasser, Nicolas Chartier, Alfredo Barrios, Jr. ("Burn Notice"), George W. Perkins ("Live from Baghdad"), Bruce C. McKenna ("Band of Brothers," "The Pacific"), David Broyles and Glatter are executive producers. Karen Campbell ("Dexter") serves as the supervising producer and joins Barrios, McKenna, and William and David Broyles as writers on the series.
