Peter Berg Launches Unscripted Film 45 Banner, Sets Special Forces Docu-Series for History

Director Peter Berg has launched a production banner for unscripted material, starting with a series on U.S. Special Forces for History.

Film 45 is a separate entity from Berg’s Film 44 film and TV company that is home to his narrative projects. Berg has partnered with producer Matthew Goldberg, who will serve as president of the Santa Monica-based company.

Film 45 is also working on a theatrical feature about singer Rihanna, which is billed as a contemporary version of the 1967 Bob Dylan tour documentary “Don’t Look Back.”

“This is an exciting time for unscripted and we are fully committed to being a part of this robust and creative medium,” Berg said.

History has given an eight-episode order to the docu series that is in the vein of Berg’s 2013 feature “Lone Survivor,” following men and women of the U.S. Special Forces, examining the triumphs and tragedies of the modern battleground.

Berg and Goldberg are exec producing the series with Brandon Carroll. Matt Ginsburg and Elaine Frontain Bryant are executive producers for History.

Goldberg and Berg are already working together on the HBO sports docu series “State of Play,” now in production on its second season.
