Guardians of the Galaxy

Story by Jack Foley

CHRIS Pratt is set to make a TV comeback with his Magnificent Seven director Antoine Fuqua for a new series called The Terminal List.

The former Parks and Recreation luminary would both star in and executive produce the conspiracy thriller, which is currently in development. Fuqua will direct the pilot and also executive produce. A network is not yet attached.

The Terminal List follows Reece (Pratt) after his entire platoon of Navy SEALs is ambushed during a high-stakes covert mission.

As he returns home with conflicting memories of the event and questions about culpability, new evidence comes to light when Reece discovers dark forces working against him.

The drama is based on the Jack Carr novel of the same name and is reportedly envisioned as a multiple-season scripted drama. Pratt and co are looking to the likes of FX and premium cable networks and streaming services to take it on.

David DiGilio (ABC’s Traveler) will pen the script and serve as another of the show’s executive producers alongside Pratt and Fuqua.

The Terminal List would mark Pratt’s first TV works since he wrapped Parks in 2015. Since then, the actor has largely focused on features, with roles in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise and two Jurassic World films, as well as lending his voice for a pair of Lego Movies.

Fuqua, meanwhile, counts The Equalizer franchise and Southpaw among his recent work. But he’s no stranger to TV, having directed and executive produced series including The Resident, Shooter, Training Day and Ice.
