The raid that killed Osama bin Laden was one of the American military's proudest moments of the last two years, and a new film dramatizing the events leading up to and including the mission is headed to TVs across the country. Dubbed Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden, the movie is set to debut on November 4 on the National Geographic Channel, reports The Associated Press.
The movie is the latest foray of the storied May 2, 2011 raid into the pop culture world. Most recently, one of the Navy SEALs who took part in the mission published a first-hand account in September, and Academy Award winning director Kathryn Bigelow is releasing a big screen account later this year.
Seal Team Six, though a dramatized version of the event, has been looked at by everyone from retired Navy SEALs to historians familiar with bin Laden's life to be sure it is as accurate as possible.
"While some aspects of the characterizations have been dramatized for creative reasons, the core story is an accurate portrayal of an event that ended the longest manhunt in American history," National Geographic said in a press release, according to the AP.
Navy SEALs have earned a great deal of attention as of late. Most notably, the 2012 big screen hit Act of Valor starred active duty members of the elite military sector.
