Vietnam War Drama TV Series ‘The Suck’ to Premiere on Discovery

Discovery-Channel_D_logo_760pxLionsgate and Discovery have announced a new ten episode dramatic television series based on a memoir by former combat veteran and Greenpeace executive Stephen McAllister. Titled “The Suck,” the new series is headed by Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz to premiere in 2018.

According the Lionsgate, the series will present an “unexpected view” of the Vietnam war from an American perspective, and will dramatize the story of the Vietnamese in a way “not previously explored in television.”

“We are so lucky that Ed and Marshall, who have created so many indelible characters and unforgettable stories, are now taking Discovery viewers on a new journey,” said Rich Ross, Group President of Discovery, Animal Planet, Science Channel and Velocity.

“This series brings together an incredible property, the brilliant creative team of Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz and the perfect partner in our friends at Discovery,” said Lionsgate Television Group Chairman Kevin Beggs.

Lionsgate is currently partnering with Discovery on the anthology scripted series “Manhunt: The UNABOMer” starring Sam Worthington and Paul Bettany.

Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz previously worked together on television series such as “thirtysomething,” “My So-Called Life,” “Relativity” and “Once and Again.”
