Production Company
Nashville, USA
For almost 2 years, we’ve been working on an incredible new series for National Geographic. In collaboration with Jeff Hasler, Brian Lovett, Scott Boggins and many other talented people at National Geographic Studios; Co-Directors & Executive Producers Joel & Jesse Edwards along with the Evolve team have helped craft this groundbreaking documentary episodic series.

On Monday Jan 15th 2018 at 9/8c, National Geographic will premiere CHAIN OF COMMAND, an incredible and unprecedented look at the U.S. military’s mission to fight violent extremism. Filmed over 18 months and spanning two presidential administrations, this series offers an intimate portrait of how military strategies are implemented throughout the chain of command, from inside the highest reaches of the Pentagon to the front lines all around the world.

Working closely with Gen. Joseph Dunford, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, National Geographic was given rare access to cover how our service men and women carry out their responsibilities and cope with the sacrifices they must make in their personal lives in order to serve our country.
