Former Suits showrunner Sean Jablonski is currently working with TNT to develop React, an original military series.  Barry Josephson (Bones) and Scott Waugh (who served as producer, director and editor of Relativity Media’s recent Act of Valor) are also signed on to the project.  Waugh will handle the same duties on React as he did with Act of Valor, at least for the pilot.   He will be joined by some of his Bandito Brothers partners should the series get picked up for a full run.

TNT is hoping to capitalize on the popularity of Act of Valor, which, despite being critically panned, won a Teen Choice Award (kids these days …) for best action film.  React would be based on the reality of life in a black ops task forces.  For more on the project, hit the jump.

scott-waugh-reactThough THR clarifies that React is in no way officially linked with Act of Valor, the parallels are certainly clear.  The movie, which starred Roselyn SanchezNestor SerranoEmilio Rivera and actual active-duty Navy SEALS is a story about global anti-terrorism.  The plot follows the team as they embark on a special mission to rescue a kidnapped CIA agent.  The film grossed over $80 million worldwide.

TNT is aggressively expanding their slate of series this year, having ordered seven new dramas to go into development, including Frank Darabont‘s L.A. Noir pilot as well as offerings from such diverse figures as Dick Wolf and Matthew McConaughey.
