Actors playing troops on TV shows normally get up and dust themselves off after the fake explosions die off and the directors yell "cut." But "Bomb Patrol: Afghanistan" isn't fake; it's a reality show inspired by the movie "The Hurt Locker" and it's about to bring a war that's claimed more than 1,000 American lives into a living room near you -- courtesy of the U.S. Navy and G4, a subsidiary of Comcast and leader in computer gaming.
While the Navy certainly green-lighted the show based on its potential to highlight the courage and skills of dedicated Sailors, it's not likely everyone is going to see it that way.
Cameras and crew will follow a Navy explosive ordnance disposal team from their training in the U.S. to the Afghan theater, G4 said in an announcement. The show is scheduled for the spring TV line-up.
