Paramount Network Orders Comedy ’68 Whiskey’

Ten Episodes Ordered

Paramount Network has ordered 10 one-hour episodes of “68 Whiskey,” a new, scripted comedic drama series from Imagine Television Studios and CBS Television Studios. “68 Whiskey” is a dark comedy following a multicultural mix of men and women deployed as Army medics to a forward operating base in Afghanistan nicknamed “The Orphanage.” Together, they endure a dangerous and Kafkaesque world that leads to self-destructive appetites, outrageous behavior, intense camaraderie and occasionally, a profound sense of purpose.

Brian Grazer will serve as an executive producer along with Ron Howard, Imagine Television Group Chairman Francie Calfo (“Empire,” “Genius”), Imagine Television President Samie Kim Falvey and Roberto Benabib (“Weeds,” “The Brink,” “Ally McBeal”), who is also set to write. Zion Rubin, the creator of the Israeli television series “Charlie Golf One,” from which 68 Whiskey has been adapted, will also executive produce, along with Efrat Shmaya Dror (United Studios of Israel) and Danna Stern (yes Studios).
