Relativity and the Bandito Brothers are bringing their Navy SEALs movie Act Of Valor to the small screen. The Bandito Bros and Relativity’s TV division RelativityREAL will develop a drama series based on the movie and plan to take the project to broadcast and cable networks shortly.

The film, which opened at No. 1 at the domestic box office earlier this year, featured a group of active-duty U.S. Navy SEALs, alongside actors Roselyn Sanchez, Alex Veadov, Jason Cottle and Nester Serrano, in a fictionalized account of a real-life Navy SEAL operation.

Act of Valor will mark the second RelativityREAL series project based on a Relativity feature, following Catfish: The TV Show premiering on MTV in November. The company is currently exploring television options for film properties Immortals, Haywire and Movie 43. Meanwhile, Bandito Bros and Act Of Valor‘s Scott Waugh is shepherding a military drama project React at TNT. Bandito Bros are with WME.
