“Inspired by the life of a real covert intelligence officer who is still active in the field today,” Snatchback “follows a highly skilled privately contracted team of operatives as they recover hostages across the globe from some of the most exotic, and equally dangerous locations on the planet,” per the official synopsis. Scott Rosenberg (The Shield, Chuck) will serve as writer and executive producer. No network is attached yet.
