According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chris Pratt is considering a return to television. The star of Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World now wants to play a lead in the conspiracy thriller series The Terminal List. Pratt would play Lieutenant Commander James Reece, whose platoon gets ambushed and killed during a covert mission gone wrong. Returning home with conflicting memories of the event, Reece begins to uncover dark forces within the government plotting against him.
Pratt wants to co-produce The Terminal List alongside director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), who already collaborated with Pratt in his 2016 remake of the western classic The Magnificent Seven. David DiGilio (Strange Angel, Traveler) will pen the script based on a novel by Jack Carr, a former Navy SEAL. The series is envisioned as a multiple-season show. The Terminal List will be produced by MRC TV and Civic Center Media, two companies behind HBO’s recent adaptation of Stephen King’s novel The Outsider. The project will be offered to prestige outlets, premium cable networks, and streaming services. If the series gets picked up, this will be Pratt’s first television role since the sitcom Parks and Recreation ended back in 2015.
