The Good Soldier (TV Pilot)

Dark Comedy/War Satire – limited series
Adaptation. Based on the novel “The Good Soldier Svejk and his Adventures in the Great War” by Jaroslav Hasek.

Definitive good ole boy, patriot and backwoods raconteur Joe McVicar hears the call to arms again after the attacks of 9/11, and leaves behind his position as owner and operator of Ace Dog Trainers, LLC, to rejoin his unit. A former Army of One (officially a Private who received a medical discharge from the army for mental incompetence during the first Gulf War), his desire to be all he can be by joining in the War on Terror takes him through endless layers of bureaucracy. From his home in the Volunteer State (Parson’s Still, Tennessee – “It’s right near Frog Jump, which is just east of Bald Knob”) to the farflung front lines in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Washington DC, the War against Evil is where you find it.
