Thomas Howell (Ash Spenser), Paul Cassell (Manager Rick), Larissa Vereza (Tourist Woman), Bernadette Speakes (Woman), Gemma Brooke Allen (Terrified Child #1), Caige Coulter (Terrified Child #2), Callum Joyce (Terrified Child #3), and Lindalee Czarnecki (Terrified Child #4).

CBS’s “SEAL Team” is a new military drama that follows the professional and personal lives of the most elite unit of Navy SEALs as they train, plan and execute the most dangerous, high stakes missions our country can ask of them. Jason Hayes is the respected, intense leader of the Tier One team whose home life has suffered as a result of his extensive warrior’s existence.

His team includes his trusted confidant, Ray Perry, the longest-tenured operator with whom Jason shares an ingrained shorthand, and Sonny Quinn, an exceptional, loyal soldier with a checkered past who still combats self-destructive tendencies. Undergoing additional rigorous training in the hope of joining Hayes’ select unit is Clay Spenser, a young, multi-lingual second generation SEAL with insatiable drive and dedication.

Vital to the team’s success are CIA analyst Mandy Ellis, who has sacrificed everything in her drive to root out evil and take down terrorists, and Lisa Davis, a no-nonsense, take-charge logistics officer and unofficial den mother responsible for outfitting the team with the necessary gear for each mission. Deployed on clandestine missions worldwide at a moment’s notice, and knowing the toll it takes on them and their families, this tight-knit SEAL team displays unwavering patriotism and fearless dedication even in the face of overwhelming odds.

“SEAL Team” stars David Boreanaz (Jason Hayes), Max Thieriot (Clay Spenser), Neil Brown Jr. (Ray), AJ Buckley (Sonny), Toni Trucks (Davis), and Jessica Paré (Mandy Ellis).

“SEAL Team” is filmed in Los Angeles, Calif. It’s produced by CBS Television Studios. The executive producers are Benjamin Cavell, Ed Redlich, Christopher Chulack, Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly.
