Season One from Brian Grazer and Ron Howard’s Imagine Television Studios
and CBS Television Studios Is Now Available to Binge on CBS All Access
May 15, 2020 – CBS All Access, CBS’ subscription video on demand and live streaming service, today announced the addition of Paramount Network’s 68 WHISKEY, introducing the CBS All Access audience to additional content from within the ViacomCBS family. All 10 episodes of the hour-long comedic drama are now available to stream on the service, giving subscribers the perfect summer binge.
When 68 WHISKEY premiered on Jan. 15 on the Paramount Network, it broke a new record as the most-watched cable drama series premiere in over a year (Nielsen live plus 3-day ratings, since November 2018).
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®-nominated series creator, showrunner and series writer Roberto Benabib (“Weeds,” “The Brink,” “Ally McBeal”) executive produced the series along with Oscar® winner Brian Grazer, Oscar® 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 produced, along with Efrat Shmaya Dror (United Studios of Israel), Danna Stern (yes Studios), Francie Calfo and Michael Lehmann. Lehman also directed the pilot and half the series. The series is produced by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard’s Imagine Television Studios and CBS Television Studios. Keith Cox was the Executive in Charge of Production for Paramount Network.
