Paramount Network has opted against a second season of dark dramedy “68 Whiskey,” which followed a multicultural band of Army medics stationed in Afghanistan on a base nicknamed “The Orphanage.” Together, the medics navigated a dangerous and sometimes absurd world, relying on comradery, various vices, and occasionally a profound sense of purpose to carry them through. The show starred Sam Keeley, Jeremy Tardy, Gage Golightly, Cristina Rodlo, Beth Riesgraf, Lamont Thompson, Nicholas Coombe and Derek Theler.
“68 Whiskey” hailed from Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and their Imagine Television banner. The duo served as executive producers on the project, alongside series creator and writer Roberto Benabib. Howard was originally lined up to direct the pilot, but that responsibility eventually fell to Michael Lehmann.
The now final episode of “68 Whiskey” aired on March 18th. Ten episodes in total were produced.
