68 Whiskey airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Paramount Network. In the all-new January 22 episode, Roback, Davis, and Petrocelli make their way back to base through treacherous desert; Roback makes a grand gesture to help out Alvarez, complicating things with Durkin; and Holloway takes a special interest in one of her patients.

Blending intense drama with irreverent humor, 68 Whiskey follows a multicultural band of Army medics stationed in Afghanistan on a base nicknamed "The Orphanage." Together, the medics navigate a dangerous and sometimes absurd world, relying on comradery, various vices, and, occasionally, a profound sense of purpose to carry them through. 68 Whiskey stars Sam Keeley, Jeremy Tardy, Gage Golightly, Cristina Rodlo, Beth Riesgraf, Lamont Thompson, Nicholas Coombe and Derek Theler.

Emmy(R) Award-nominated series creator, showrunner and series writer Roberto Benabib (Weeds, The Brink, Ally McBeal) executive produces along with Oscar(R)-winner Brian Grazer, Oscar(R)-winner Ron Howard and Imagine Television President Samie Kim Falvey. Zion Rubin, the creator of the Israeli television series Charlie Golf One, from which 68 Whiskey has been adapted, also executive produces, along with Efrat Shmaya Dror (United Studios of Israel), Danna Stern (yes Studios), Francie Calfo and Michael Lehmann.

68 Whiskey is the first series to premiere from Paramount Network's ambitious 2020 scripted slate. The slate is headlined by Yellowstone, co-created by Taylor Sheridan and John Linson and starring Costner, which is set to debut its third season later in summer 2020.

Exclusive content from the series is available on the @68Whiskey social accounts on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and as well as the Paramount Network YouTube channel and paramountnetwork.com.
