Netflix is now streaming Shooter, the new US series starring Ryan Phillippe as former US Marine Bob Lee Swagger who is forced to clear his name after being framed for murder.
The series is based on Stephen Hunter’s novel Point of Impact which was also adapted into a 2007 movie starring Mark Wahlberg who serves as an executive producer on this new TV series.
In the novel, film and series, Swagger is framed for the attempted murder of the US President and must fight to clear his name and unmask the real culprits.
Episodes are being made available one per week, in line with the show’s US transmission – a growing trend for both Netflix and rival Amazon.
The show was originally due to premiere in July but was postponed due to the Dallas and Baton Rouge shootings.
Episode one debuted on the USA Network and on Netflix UK on November 15th.
