Production on Burn Notice Prequel Underway

Burn Notice (USA Network)

Last November, we reported that a made-for-television film prequel had been greenlighted for the popular USA Network series Burn Notice.

Now we're learning (via TV|Line) that production is underway in Bogota, Columbia. Directed by Jeffrey Donovan (who plays burned spy Michael Westen in the series) and starring Bruce Campbell (who plays Westen's friend Sam Axe), the film takes place in 2005 and feature's Axe's last mission as a Navy SEAL.

Other cast members include Chandra West (The Gates) as Sam's girlfriend, RonReaco Lee (Let's Stay Together, The Good Guys) and Kiele Sanchez (The Glades) as Americans providing humanitarian aid in Columbia, and John Diehl (The Shield, Point Pleasant) as Sam's commander.

The (apparently still untitled) Burn Notice prequel is expected to air on USA later this spring.
