Shooter, USA Network's highly anticipated drama about a former Marine sniper who is enlisted to protect the President of the United States, announced its premiere date today.
Debuting on Tuesday, July 26 at 10/9c, Shooter stars Ryan Phillippe (Secrets and Lies, Flags of Our Fathers) as the reclusive sniper Bob Lee Swagger, a character made famous by the titular 2007 action flick with Mark Wahlberg, and also a series of novels by Stephen Hunter. Omar Epps (House, Love and Basketball) co-stars as Isaac Johnson, his former commanding officer who coaxes Lee back into action with a clandestine operation to thwart an attack against POTUS.
Last week, Shooter announced the addition of actor Tom Sizemore, who will play Senior CIA agent Hugh Meachum. Sizemore's character is described as "willing to do whatever necessary to advance his country's standing in an increasingly competitive global economy."
Shooter is from executive producers Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson. Check out the first trailer, which premiered at NBCUniversal's Upfront presentation in New York City this week. Stars Phillippe and Epps attended the event, along with other USA talent; see photos here!
