Cinemax Orders Strike Back, Inspired by the Thriller by Chris Ryan

Strike Back by Chris Ryan
More information about the book

Inside TV is reporting that Cinemax has ordered Strike Back, a 10-part drama series "inspired" by both the thriller Strike Back, written by the pseudonymous Chris Ryan, a former British Special Forces operative, and the 6-episode UK mini-series adapted from the book.

Production will begin this month with filming in Hungary and South Africa, and feature new characters in a globe-spanning setting.

The book features two soldiers, one a celebrated military hero and the other a broken veteran living in the gutters of London. Their paths last crossed nearly twenty years ago. Now, amidst a hostage crisis in the Middle East, their lives are about to collide again.

While the book is not generally available in the US (the cover above is for a UK re-issue scheduled for publication later this year), the mini-series Chris Ryan's Strike Back (Blu-ray disc) is available. Watch a trailer below.
