“Seal Team Six: The Raid On Osama Bin Laden” will be airing on National Geographic just two days before the presidential election. The controversial premiere date ensures that the full-length feature film, the first dramatized re-telling of the special forces operation that killed the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, will be injected into the national discussion in the pivotal final days before American voters cast their ballots.
Produced by The Weinstein Company and directed by John Stockwell (“Into The Blue”), “Seal Team Six” stars Freddy Rodriquez, Xzibit, Cam Gigandet, Anson Mount, Kathleen Robertson, Eddie Kay Thomas and Kenneth Miller. It will be made available for streaming on Netflix a day after its TV premiere.
In HuffPost’s exclusive clip from the film, Seal Team Six learns that Bin Laden is indeed the target of the mission they’ve spent months training for. After receiving their orders, the team prepares to embark on the daunting mission ahead.
“Seal Team Six: The Raid On Osama Bin Laden” premieres Sunday, November 4 at 8 p.m. ET on The National Geographic Channel.
