Netflix Picks Up Drama 'The Corps' Starring Miles Heizer and Vera Farmiga

Netflix has today given a series order to the original drama series The Corps starring Miles Heizer (Parenthood, 13 Reasons Why) and Vera Farmiga (Bates Motel, Five Days at Memorial). The first season will produce 10 episodes.

Set in 1990, Cameron (Heizer), a bullied, gay high school student joins the Marine Corps with his straight best friend, Ray - a dangerous move when being gay in the military meant jail time or worse. As these two friends plunge into Marine Corps boot camp, where the landmines are both literal and metaphorical, they join a platoon of young men on a harrowing journey of transformation.

In addition to Heizer and Farmiga, the drama will star Max Parker, Liam Oh, Cedrick Cooper, Ana Ayora, Angus O'Brien, Dominic Goodman, Kieron Moore, Nicholas Logan, Rico Paris, Blake Burt, Logan Gould, Zach Roerig, Johnathan Nieves, Brandon Tyler Moore, Ivan Hoey Jr., Anthony Marble and Joy Osmanski.

Andy Parker developed the drama inspired by the memoir The Pink Marine by Greg Cope White. He will executive produce with Norman Lear, Brent Miller, Rachel Davidson, Scott Hornbacher and director Peter Hoar. Sony Pictures Television and Act III Productions will produce.
