VALOR: First Look at The CW’s New Military Drama Series


VALOR revolves around an elite unit of U.S. Army helicopter pilots called the Shadow Raiders. The group is sent on a top secret mission to Somalia, but it goes terribly awry. Only two members of the team return safely: Warrant Officer Nora Madani (Christina Ochoa) — one of the unit’s first female helicopter pilots. — and her commanding officer, Captain Leland Gallo (Matt Barr). Unfortunately, the whereabouts of their comrade Jimmy Kam (W. Tre Davis) is unknown.

Now back in the U.S., Madani and Gallo are the only ones who know the truth about what really went wrong in Somalia. Nora’s boyfriend, First Lieutenant Ian Porter (Charlie Barnett), suspects she’s not telling him the full story, and Jess Kam (Corbin Reid), Jimmy’s wife and Nora’s friend, is frustrated and furious at being kept in the dark. Meanwhile Thea, (Melissa Roxburgh) the CIA officer charged with investigating the failed mission, has her own suspicions about what occurred.

Nora, meanwhile, is grounded from flying while she’s still recovering from a gunshot wound suffered during the mission. But when it’s discovered that Jimmy is alive and being held captive by a group of ruthless terrorists, Nora is determined to join Gallo to rescue their friend.

Bill Haber (RIZZOLI & ISLES), Anna Fricke (BEING HUMAN), Kyle Jarrow (LOST GENERATION) and Michael Robin (NIP/TUCK) will serve as executive producers.

VALOR will air Mondays at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT this fall on The CW (see The CW’s full fall 2017 schedule).
