Black Watch (working title) premieres Fall 2016 on HISTORY
Canadian Original, World Broadcast Premiere
Black Watch tells the epic story of five men who fought their way through WWII as a team of snipers and scouts. Their mission is to clear towns of Nazi soldiers who could decimate advancing Allied troops. This is a ‘Band of Brothers’ story as told by the men who experienced it: the surviving members of a sniper unit from Canada’s most storied regiment, the Black Watch. The Black Watch snipers did the dirtiest work in the war, armed with nothing but their wits and their rifles, as they endured the ultimate test of combat in the liberation of Western Europe from Nazi tyranny. Most of these men are still alive, and their intimate, first-hand accounts of the hell they fought through are combined with compelling and dramatic re-creations of their battle experiences.
