Talaria to Develop Comedy Series Based on Mark Greene's 'Unsealed'

Talaria Media is developing a new comedy series about a retired Navy SEAL, Variety has learned exclusively.

The untitled single-camera series hails from writer and director Jame Anderson. It is loosely based on stories from Mark Greene’s book “Unsealed” as well as Anderson’s own life and relationship with her father, who was himself a veteran. Talaria’s Bobby Morgan will executive produce.

The official logline for the series states it is “about a retired Navy SEAL struggling to adjust to civilian life after he’s forced to work at a new age spiritual center with his estranged daughter.”

No network or streaming service is currently attached to the project.

Anderson is currently attached to direct the feature film “Pregnant in Las Vegas,” which she also wrote, for Patriot Pictures and Mainstay Entertainment. She will also direct “Summer in Rome” for Filmtrax, “Arigato Tokyo” for Talaria Media, and an untitled comedy feature for Convergent Media. She was previously named a Top 25 Writer to Watch by The International Screenwriters’ Association and New Female Director to Watch Out For by Viva Glam Magazine.

Greene served in the U.S. Navy for 20 years before his retirement. In his transition to civilian life, Greene identified six predictable phases in transformation, which served as the basis for his book “Unsealed,” which he wrote with Shelby Rawson. The book was published in January 2024.

Talaria Media’s recent projects include “Prisoner’s Daughter” from Catherine Hardwicke and starring Brian Cox and Kate Beckinsale, “The Great Debate with Charles Barkley,” and “Saving the Roar” from writer-director Michael Nash.
