  • The highly anticipated Amazon Original series The Terminal List will premiere on 1 July.
  • The action-packed show stars Chris Pratt, who also serves as an executive producer
  • In an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip, Pratt discusses how the series was filmed as if it were a movie using a newly coined technique called CineVision.


The highly anticipated Amazon Original series The Terminal List will premiere on 1 July, exclusively on Prime Video.

The action series follows James Reece (Chris Pratt) after his entire platoon of Navy SEALs is ambushed during a high-stakes covert mission. Reece returns home to his family with conflicting memories of the event and questions about his culpability. Over eight 1-hour episodes, Reece discovers dark forces working against him, endangering not only his life but the lives of those he loves.

Based on the best-selling novel by Jack Carr, who also serves as an executive producer, The Terminal List also stars Constance Wu (Katie Buranek), Taylor Kitsch (Ben Edwards), Riley Keough (Lauren Reece), Arlo Metz (Lucy Reece), and Patrick Schwarzenegger (Donny Mitchell). 

The series is also executive produced by Chris Pratt, Antoine Fuqua (The Equalizer, Training Day) and showrunner David DiGilio.

In an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip, the trio of producers discuss how they filmed the series in a similar way to filming a movie by using a newly coined technique called CineVision.

"It's a really exciting time in storytelling when you talk about this new medium that's emerging. We're coining it as CineVision," Pratt says in the video.

"It's all the production value of a film but told over eight hours. It allows you to do things that you really don't get to see," The Jurassic World actor elaborates further.
