National Geographic nabs ‘Seal Team Six’

Cable network will air story of Osama Bin Laden's capture two days before election

Nat Geo will exclusively premiere the feature film “Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden” on Nov. 4 — two days before the U.S. presidential election.

Pic, directed by John Stockwell, re-creates the Navy Seal takedown of Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden.

The Weinstein Co. landed distribution rights to the pic back in May at the Cannes Film Festival, and Harvey Weinstein said he’d talked with Nat Geo topper Howard T. Owens about about the potential insights the film offers the channel’s viewers.

“I think many of us, myself included, have our own ideas of how everything unfolded that night,” said Weinstein. “This portrayal of the events that took place that night is moving to say the very least.”

“The Hurt Locker’s” Nicolas Chartier produced “Seal Team Six.” for theatrical release. Nat Geo landed the film with a preemptive bid for TV. Pic is the cabler’s first broadcast of a feature film based on real-life events.

Seal Team Six” also will be available on Netflix starting Nov. 5.
