So far, as part of HitFix's exclusive four-part behind-the-scenes package from National Geographic Channel's "Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden," we've presented mini-docs on "Film Concept" and "Soldiers."
In today's installment, we cover Set Information & Location.
Not surprisingly, it turns out that "Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden" wasn't able to shoot in Afghanistan and Pakistan. So where did they go to recreate the desert terrain and how much of the crew was indigenous? You'll have to watch to find out and to see what co-star Xzibit says about shooting blanks.
Directed by John Stockwell and starring Cam Gigandet, Anson Mount, Freddy Rodriquez, Xzibit, Kathleen Robertson, Eddie Kay Thomas, Robert Knepper and William Fichtner, "Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden" airs on November 4 at 8 p.m. on NatGeo.
