U.S. net History is teaming up with Lone Survivor director Peter Berg and his California-based unscripted prodco Film 45 for an eight-part docuseries on the U.S. Special Forces.

Berg is also co-owner of the prodco Film 44, which is known for HBO sports docuseries On Freddie Roach and State of Play. Berg’s latest endeavor – which he runs with producers Matthew Goldberg (State of Play, CNN’s The Sixties) and Brandon Carroll (HBO’s Will of the Warrior) is aimed at creating unscripted and branded content for film and television, as well as providing production and post-production services.

Set to premiere later this year, the as-yet-untitled series is to focus on men and women from the U.S. Special Forces, who provide first-hand accounts of their missions.

Using interviews and dramatic recreations by former members of the military, the stories are to give “the most intimate and human look at the triumphs and tragedies of the modern battleground,” according to a release from the net.

Executive producers from Film 45 are Berg, Goldberg and Carroll, while Matt Ginsburg and Elaine Frontain Bryant are exec producing for History.
