Watch Jerry Bruckheimer Make the Nay SEALS Look Uncool
That the Navy SEALS are bad ass goes without saying. After the killing of Osama Bin Laden it became pretty obvious that we were going to get bombarded with a bunch of Navy SEALS related programming, which is not a problem. Remeber that corny 80s Navy SEALS movie with Charlie Sheen and Bill Paxton, that was good harmless fun. What is a problem, however, is Jerry Bruckheimer producing a Navy Seals TV show, because Jerry Bruckheimer is about the only person who could make the SEALS look lame. Prepare to be underwhelmed:
In its second sale this season, Bruckheimer TV has set up a Navy SEALs drama at ABC with a put pilot commitment. The untitled project, from Life creator/executive producer Rand Ravich, is based on the lives of Navy SEALs and their families. Ravich will write the script and executive produce the Warner Bros TV project with his producing partner Far Shariat, Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman. KristieAnne Reed is co-executive producing.
But will there be pirates in it?!!!! *takes puff on inhaler* This is just bad news for everyone who loves freedom. Jerry Bruckheimer hasn’t made anything remotely close to good in over a decade (if you say Pirates of the Caribbean I will cut you) and the stuff he made before that barely qualified as good. But at least there won’t be a talking Kangaroo. Have to be thankful for the small blessings.
