A review from Instep Desk at The News International Magazine:

Given USA Network’s recent successes (Robot, Suits), there is some curiosity about their upcoming new show, Shooter. Based on the novel, Point of Impact, by Stephen Hunter and the 2007 film starring Mark Wahlberg, the series is backed by several noteworthy producers such as Wahlberg (Boardwalk Empire) and features Ryan Phillippe in the role of Bob Lee Swagger, an American war hero who gets entangled in an assassination plot targeting the president and is pulled out of retirement. Phillippe, who starred in the mystery serial Secrets and Lies, is also serving as producer to the project, which has received a series pick-up green light from USA.
