(W: Writer, D: Director, EP: Executive Producer, Co-EP: Co-Executive Producer, P: Producer, SR: Showrunner)


  • Genre: Miniseries
  • Logline: Based on Martha Raddatz's novel of the same name, the drama relives a heroic fight for survival during the Iraq War when the First Cavalry Division from Fort Hood, Texas was ferociously ambushed on April 4, 2004 in Sadr City, Baghdad - a day that came to be known in military annals as "Black Sunday." The series will cut between the soldiers on the ground and the homefront in Texas where their wives and families await news for 48 hellish hours, expecting the worst. The incident changed the American military's view of Iraq from a peacekeeping mission to a fight against domestic insurgents.
