“SHOOTER’s full of sharp cat-and-mouse intrigue and whiplash double crosses.” – Entertainment Weekly TORONTO (October 31, 2016) – Bravo sets its sights on thrills with the intense new action-packed drama, SHOOTER, airing Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET and premiering Nov. 15. From Executive Producer Mark Wahlberg, star of the 2007 film Shooter, and developed for television by John Hlavin (THE SHIELD), SHOOTER stars Ryan Phillipe as former Marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger, the iconic hero of the best-selling series of novels by Stephen Hunter. Viewers can catch up on new episodes of SHOOTER on demand via set-top box following each broadcast premiere.
Based on Stephen Hunter’s Point of Impact, the first book in the Bob Lee Swagger novels, SHOOTER centres on Swagger (Phillipe), an elite marksman living in exile after retiring from the military. Omar Epps (HOUSE) stars as Isaac Johnson, a fellow ex-Marine and Swagger’s former commanding officer, now a Secret Service agent, who draws Swagger back into the fold for a clandestine operation. SHOOTER also stars Cynthia Addai-Robinson (SPARTACUS) as FBI agent Nadine Memphis; Shantal VanSanten (THE FLASH) as Julie Swagger, Bob Lee’s wife; and Eddie McClintock (BONES) as Jack Payne, a shadowy ex-military operative.
In the premiere episode “Point of Impact” (Tuesday, Nov. 15 at 10 p.m. ET), Bob Lee Swagger is tracked down by his former commanding officer, Isaac Johnson, in order to coax Swagger back into action to protect the President from an assassination plot. Meanwhile, FBI agent Nadine Memphis investigates possible assassin suspects.
