Director Ron Howard (Solo: A Star Wars Story) has a new TV series in development called 68 Whiskey and the pilot was just picked up by Paramount Network. 

The series is described as being a dark comedy and it's an adaptation of an Israeli TV series. The story follows "a multicultural mix of men and women deployed as Army medics to a forward operating base in Afghanistan nicknamed 'The Orphanage.' Together, they endure a dangerous and Kafkaesque world that leads to self-destructive appetites, outrageous behavior, intense camaraderie and occasionally, a profound sense of purpose."

The series was created by co-creator of The Brink, Roberto Benabib. and it sounds like it could make for an interesting series. It seems to me like it might have some similarities to the classic series M.A.S.H.
