Before guarding the galaxy and taming dinosaurs, Chris Pratt was merely known for his roles on the TV shows, Everwood and Parks and Recreation. And according to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor is returning to television, working again with his Magnificent Seven director Antoine Fuqua for The Terminal List. Pratt is set to star in and executive produce the conspiracy thriller, which is currently in development. Although a network is not attached to the series as of yet, Fuqua will direct the pilot and executive produce the project as well.

THR says the series “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 series is based on the Jack Carr novel of the same name and will be shopped to “prestige outlets like FX and premium cable networks and streaming services.”

THR notes that David DiGilio (ABC’s Traveler) will pen the script and executive produce. The conspiracy thriller will be produced by both MRC TV and Civic Center Media.
