History has partnered with Peter Berg (Lone Survivor) to chronicle the real-life stories of the U.S. Special Forces.

Live to Tell, which premieres Sunday, Jan. 10 at 10/9c, will tell the frontline tales of the Army Rangers, Navy Seals and Green Berets, as veterans recount their experiences serving in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The eight-episode, hour-long series will feature interviews, archival footage and re-enactments.

Among the episodes, Berg will once again recount the story of Marcus Luttrell. The U.S. Navy SEAL’s story formed the basis of 2013’s Lone Survivor, which Berg wrote and directed.

Other episodes include “Charlie Platoon and the story of Marc Lee”; “A Battle for Haditha Dam” (“a key location in Operation Iraqi Freedom”); “Objective Breton” (“a group of U.S. Army Rangers who went after a jihadist network”); and “The Green Berets of 7115” (“a group of Special Forces got ambushed by Taliban fighters and had to fight their way to safety after a teammate is critically shot”).

Berg’s Film 45 is producing Live to Tell for History. Berg, Matt Goldberg, Brandon Carroll, Matt Ginsburg and Paul Cabana are executive producers.

Berg’s other TV credits include The Leftovers, Ballers and Friday Night Lights.
