Chris Pratt-Led ‘The Terminal List’ TV Series in the Works at MRC

Antoine Fuqua would direct the pilot and executive produce the Navy SEAL drama

Chris Pratt is lining up his first TV gig in nearly five years. The “Park & Recreation” alum is set to star and executive produce “The Terminal List” with Antoine Fuqua.

The series, which doesn’t have a network attached, is being developed by MRC Television. Fuqua will direct the pilot as well as executive produce.

It is based on the Jack Carr novel of the same name. Pratt will star as Reece, whose entire platoon of Navy SEALs is ambushed during a high-stakes covert mission. As he returns home with conflicting memories of the event and questions about culpability, new evidence comes to light as Reece discovers dark forces working against him.

David DiGilio will write the script and executive produce alongside Pratt and Fuqua. The drama will be produced by both MRC TV and Civic Center Media, the two companies behind HBO’s “The Outsider.”

“The Terminal List” would mark Pratt’s return to television since “Parks & Recreation” ended its seven-year run in 2015. Pratt also starred on “Everwood,” which ran for four seasons on The WB from 2002-2006.

Since “Parks” ended, Pratt has moved full-time into movies, starring as Peter Quill/Star-Lord in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where he’s appeared in four films that include top-lining two “Guardians of Galaxy” movies. He is also known for his role as Owen Grady in the “Jurassic World” films. Pratt starred in Fuqua’s remake of “The Magnificent Seven” in 2016.

He is next set to lend his voice in Pixar’s “Onward,” which hits theaters on March 6.
