The CW’s Fall 2017-18 TV lineup continues to fall into place, with this latest addition to its roster of new titles.
The military drama, “Valor,” has officially been given a series order by the network today. It comes from producers Bill Haber, Anna Fricke, Kyle Jarrow and Michael Robin, with Jarrow penning the pilot script for “Valor.” It is produced by both CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Television.
Starring Matt Barr and Christina Ochoa in its lead roles, the series is about how the boundaries between military discipline and human desires are tested on a US air base housing an elite unit of helicopter pilots trained to perform clandestine missions, in both domestic and international territories. The drama unfolds in the present as well as in flashbacks to a failed mission involving one of the first female pilots in the unit, ultimately uncovering layers of personal and government/military secrets, and leading to a season-long plan to rescue a group of MIA soldiers.
No official episode count has been revealed for the series’ first season, though, it is notably, the second new military drama fans can expect to see popping up in their television lineups later this year, following NBC’s pickup of “For God and Country” recently as well.
A majority of The CW’s veteran shows have already been renewed, aside from the cancellations of both “Frequency” and “No Tomorrow.” The fates of “The Originals” and “iZombie” still remain a mystery. “Valor” is the second new original series given a series order by The CW, following the announcement of a new “Dynasty” reboot happening at the network earlier today.
