Chris Pratt could finally be ready to return to the small screen scene after enjoying a few years of box office domination thanks to those Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World movies. Pratt's next big project is poised to be a television conspiracy thriller called The Terminal List.
MRC Television announced Tuesday that it is developing The Terminal List, an adaptation of Jack Carr's novel of the same name, which will follow Pratt's character Reece, a Navy SEAL whose entire platoon is ambushed during a covert operation. Upon returning to the United States, Reece experiences conflicting memories of what happened on that mission and questions his own culpability in the costly incident. As new evidence begins to emerge about the attack, though, Reece discovers some dark forces that may be working against him.
Pratt will star in and executive produce the project. Antoine Fuqua, who previously directed Pratt in The Magnificent Seven, will direct the pilot. The Terminal List is currently in development and the pair are shopping the show around to networks like FX, which specializes in prestige drama. With a major Hollywood star like Pratt attached, there's almost no doubt we'll be seeing him back on our TVs soon.
If the series comes to fruition, it would mark Pratt's return to television after seven years on the beloved Parks and Recreation as the unforgettable Andy Dwyer. To be fair, even though Andy was hardly an action hero, he did introduce two kick-ass alter egos in Burt Macklin, an FBI agent, and Johnny Karate, a children's TV host playing a martial arts legend.
With all that experience sleuthing AND fighting, it sounds like Pratt's already ready to go for The Terminal List.
