Pasadena, CA -- Following the success of its hit western Yellowstone, Paramount Network has revived the war drama with 68 Whiskey, which debuted this week. The series (from Brian Grazer and Ron Howard’s Imagine Television Studios and CBS Television Studios) is already drawing comparisons to the classic dramedy M*A*S*H. No surprise there; it follows a multicultural band of Army medics stationed in Afghanistan on a base nicknamed “The Orphanage” as they navigate a dangerous and sometimes absurd world. Paramount held panels for Whiskey and the upcoming Coyote, a drama starring Michael Chiklis about a career border patrol agent whose life takes an unexpected turn, during Viacom’s day at the Winter 2020 Television Critics Association tour.
