NatGeo’s “The Long Road Home” in the Works

National Geographic released a sneak peek trailer of the network’s global scripted event series, “The Long Road Home,” based on Martha Raddatz’s New York Times best-seller. Production began in March in Fort Hood, Texas, and relives a heroic fight for survival during the Iraq War when the 1st Cavalry Division from Fort Hood, Texas, was ferociously ambushed on April 4, 2004, in Sadr City, Baghdad — a day that became known in military annals as “Black Sunday.”

The series, which will air later this year on National Geographic, has an all-star cast including: Michael Kelly (“House of Cards”), Jason Ritter (“Parenthood”), E.J. Bonilla (“Unforgettable”) and Kate Bosworth (“90 Minutes in Heaven”).
