Burn Notice

Story by Jack Foley

A PREQUEL to hit TV series Burn Notice is being developed by USA Network.

Starring Bruce Campbell, the TV movie will follow the final assignment of his character, Sam Axe, before he retires as a Navy SEAL, according to Variety.

It is not yet known whether other members of the show’s cast – such as Gabrielle Anwar and Jeffrey Donovan – will appear.

But news of the prequel was announced at Comic-Con by Jeff Wachtel, the USA original programming chief, who added that filming will take place in Latin America in a few months time, between seasons four and five of the series.

Burn Notice is currently shooting season four, which recently premiered on US TV, and remains one of cable TV’s top scripted series.
